Tier 2

Tier 2

   Tier 2 refers to intervention for striving readers, including supplemental instruction, and additional practice. In addition to their regular language arts and other content area classes, Tier 2 students are enrolled in a reading intervention class. The purpose of Tier 2 instruction is to help students make significant growth in literacy, bringing them to grade level proficiency. Student progress is closely monitored and specific interventions are provided to address students' needs. Students are no longer required to take this class when they can demonstrate grade-level mastery in reading. For more information on placing students in Tier 2 classes, go to the "Placement" link.

In Granite School District, Tier 2 instruction focuses on the essential areas of word study, vocabulary, fluency, reading comprehension, and writing and is based upon Scientifically Based Reading Research (SBRR).
Instruction is systematic, explicit, and aligned with Tier 1 instruction. Instructional interventions are differentiated, scaffolded, and targeted.
