High Quality Core Instruction

The Wisconsin Center for Response To Intervention (RTI) defines high quality core instruction as curriculum, instruction and assessment that is:

  • Engaging and differentiated through the principles of Universal Design for Learning

  • Standards based

  • Data driven

  • Research and evidence based

All students should receive high-quality, culturally responsive universal academic instruction that is differentiated for student need and aligned with state and local standards. Standards assist in providing consistent grade-level benchmarks.

LCPS students in grades K-8 receive core reading instruction using balanced literacy and the components of the reading and writing workshop
