In my area resource is a special education pull out class and intervention is for general education struggling students. Interventions can either be completed in class by the general education teacher or in a pull out setting with a title 1 teacher or reading/math specialist.

Like a pp said, the services look remarkably similar in the schools I've been in. Really the only difference between my resource groups and the title 1 teacher's intervention groups are that my students have IEPs and hers don't. If students aren't successful in her group that data will be used to push them through the RtI process so they can get a formal IEP. The sad thing is that so many gen ed teachers push so hard for IEPs because they somehow think I have some "magic strategies" that I'm using with my students that the title 1 teacher is not using. Often times, the students were really better off in the title 1 groups as they tend to be smaller, can sometimes meet for more time than my groups can, and the title teacher won't take on students with severe behavior issues that would disrupt the learning of the rest of the group.
