Strengthen schoolwide learning and behavior with a proven model for change!

Academic achievement and behavior are intertwined, and students often struggle with challenges spanning both areas. This research-based and practical book helps educators apply proven Response to Intervention (RTI) methods in a new way—as a highly effective, comprehensive approach to addressing behavioral issues and related academic achievement.

Nationally known expert Cara Shores describes how schools have successfully used RTI to improve behavior in the general education K–12 environment. Readers will learn how to implement RTI both in the individual classroom and schoolwide. This guide includes:

  • Vignettes showing how educators can address behavioral issues with RTI's three tiers
  • Guidance on building teams and leveraging resources to effectively reach at-risk students
  • Advice on the role of behavioral assessment within RTI, including universal screening and progress monitoring for behavior
  • Interactive exercises, reproducibles, and other tools

Use RTI to address behavioral and academic performance, and build a better foundation for learning for all students!
