"To successfully implement an RTI framework in schools, practitioners need very practical, hands-on guidelines and tools for making this new model of school improvement work. The complexity of this task is magnified greatly in secondary schools. This book will be a treasure for educators who want to make dramatic improvements in outcomes for adolescents – especially those who struggle in learning. It not only provides a solid foundation for guiding school improvement, but it details an array of very practical tools that can be used to implement tiered instructional options in middle and high school settings.
