Susan L. Hall eloquently speaks about getting RTI going in your school and what differentiates this book from other books on the same subject.
Improve learning for all students through RTI in record time
Susan L. Hall asserts that an educator's job is not done until a school's RTI practices result in at least 95 percent of its students reading at benchmark levels. This book's research-based strategies will get you started on the road to achieving those results quickly, efficiently, and successfully. Included are case studies, delivery models, practical tools, reproducibles, analysis worksheets, and forms that can be downloaded from a secure website. This compact guide provides step-by-step instructions for:
- Effectively implementing RTI in reading for all students
- Integrating diagnostic and curriculum-based measures in program development
- Measuring RTI's impact on student learning
RTI is useful for many purposes beyond improving reading and determining special education qualification. It offers schools a unique opportunity to identify, measure, and improve all students' reading skills. Because improving student reading is what really matters, this book's focus is consistently riveted to achieving success. Jumpstart RTI shows how to make it happen.
