A step-by-step approach for implementing RTI to improve schoolwide achievement!

Principals and administrators have only scratched the surface of how Response to Intervention (RTI) can maximize school performance and student achievement. This book gives school and district leaders a comprehensive vision and framework for implementing RTI schoolwide and includes interventions and assessments for teachers.

Cara Shores and Kim Chester help educators identify students at risk, pinpoint highly effective strategies that address students′ individual needs, and use assessment to monitor progress and adjust instruction. The book offers an overview of RTI and takes readers through each level of a three-tiered RTI pyramid geared to provide effective teaching practices for all learners and develop interventions for at-risk and nonresponding students. The book presents:

  • Charts, figures, and diagrams to illustrate points throughout each chapter
  • Guidelines for developing action plans at the school or district level
  • Practical suggestions for partnering with parents
  • Reflective questions to help readers apply the information to their schools

Combining a "big picture" approach with research-based strategies, Using RTI for School Improvement illustrates how RTI can transform schools into highly effective, motivating learning environments.
