In this study, the authors conducted a systematic review of the literature to examine research focusing on the teaching, learning, implementation, and evaluation of Response to Intervention (RTI) in general education (GE) teacher preparation during the last decade (2003–2013).
A total of 10 publications were identified through electronic and hand searches.

Results reveal a longstanding gap in the literature on how GE preservice teachers can understand and apply RTI in their classrooms.
More studies and recommendations are needed to help GE preservice and in-service teachers use RTI effectively with struggling students.
