    I definitely think we have tier 1 concerns as well.  Elementary teachers are not content specialists and typically more comfortable with ELA (not always true but mostly true).

    In addition, however,  I think tiered services shouldn’t consist of workbooks (Number Worlds, Pearson Intervention kits, etc.) but analyzing student weaknesses in areas like fluency and number sense and then teaching those skills.  Sometimes that means I have to go back a grade level for a student.  In order to do this, teachers need to know and be aware of standards in their adjacent grade levels.  Ideally.  In a perfect world.  😄
