MTSS:  A combination of curriculum and instructional practices are used to support students in achieving outcomes.  It is important to distinguish between curriculum and instruction.  The curriculum is what is taught; instruction is how it is taught.  When students are learning new or difficult tasks, they are given more assistance.  As they begin to demonstrate task mastery, the assistance or support is decreased gradually in order to shift the responsibility for learning from the teacher to the student.  As the student assumes more responsibility for their learning, the teacher provides less support.
