Product Description

In RTI from All Sides, Howard points the way toward thoughtful and effective RTI - and away from potentially dangerous, rigid implementations. She offers suggestions for instructional design, collaboration, and troubleshooting - even for avoiding mediocre RTI products. Most important, she demonstrates how to apply the principles you trust to RTI: teaching reading and writing in authentic ways to help students choose just-right books that set them up to read in and out of school; using simple, ongoing assessments to know when to intensify instruction inside and outside the regular classroom; differentiating reading instruction to maintain the flow between whole-class, small-group, and one-on-one instruction while meeting specific students' needs; designing interventions to amplify instruction instead of sidelining students to skill-and-drill that takes them further from engaged, proficient reading; coordinating efforts within and between instructional supports to emphasize acceleration through the targeted instruction students need to succeed.
In addition, Howard includes helpful questions that lead book study groups to a better understanding of RTI, its structure, its implementation, and its daily application.
RTI has the potential to return instructional decision-making to teachers and to galvanize schools to design effective practices for helping all readers achieve - especially those who struggle. Read RTI from All Sides and get the information you need to create a safety net that can save struggling readers before the learning gap widens forever.
