An efficient way to merge differentiated instruction and RTI

Collecting, processing, and using assessment data to form instruction for each student can be overwhelming—especially with so much diversity in the classroom. Help is here, with this hands-on guide that brings together the two leading approaches to teaching students of varying abilities: Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI) and differentiated instruction (DI). Written in a practical, "how-to" format, this book gives middle school teachers strategies for adapting assessments, curriculum, and instruction to student abilities. Key topics include:

  • Differences and similarities between RTI and DI
  • Data analysis for effective instructional decision making
  • Strategies for applying RTI and DI to all students, including English learners, children with special needs, and high-ability students

Focused on user-friendly strategies for the classroom rather than school systems, this helpful guide includes lesson plans, case studies, examples, rubrics, and teacher reflection exercises. Streamline your instruction with this winning combination and watch student achievement soar!
