Description

Tiered instruction for our neediest writers!

There’s no shortage of books on how to set up and run a writing workshop. But where’s the book on teaching our students who struggle most or just aren’t engaged? And where does RTI fit in?

Lisa Morris provides the answers in this practical resource on implementing tiered writing instruction in Grades 2–6. With strategies for each RTI tier, this how-to guide will help you

  • Easily incorporate RTI within the writer’s workshop framework
  • Nurture confident writers with well-crafted, differentiated lessons
  • Plan daily, weekly, and year-long lessons with low-stress diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments
  • Save time with engaging and effective curriculum-based measurement (CBM) techniques and tools
  • Encourage student self-monitoring through action plans and self-assessments
  • Tap students’ interests in targeted whole-group, small-group, and individual instruction
  • Meet the needs of all students while transforming struggling writers into confident communicators

Add to that rich classroom examples, student samples, reproducible charts, and in-depth instructional guidance, making this is your ultimate RTI writing guide.

Lisa Morris is an elementary school teacher and teacher trainer for the Okaloosa County School District in Fort Walton Beach, FL. While researching for this book, Lisa kept four goals in mind: 1) focus on research-based differentiated instruction and strategies, 2) look closely at formative and summative assessments as well as curriculum-based measurements, 3) show how student assessment drives instruction, and 4) hold true to the foundations of the writer’s workshop.

RTI Meets Writer's Workshop is the kind of book every elementary teacher should have. And don't worry—it will not sit on your shelf. You will use it daily to help guide you through the landmines of RTI and writer’s workshop.”
—Nancy Foote, Teacher
San Tan Elementary School, Gilbert, AZ

“Amongst all the theory-driven texts on RTI, this book provides a practical, hands-on approach to improving student's writing skills through RTI tier intervention. The author's approach is tried and true in the classroom and is easily adapted to other classrooms using the writer's workshop.”
—Gary L. Willhite, Professor of Teacher Education
University of Wisconsin, La Crosse
