This first-of-its-kind, practical, interactive, “how to” guide gives today’s busy educators hands-on help for understanding and effectively implementing the mathematics curriculum with the RTI model—and improving student conceptual learning in mathematics.
This practical guide is designed to help educators gain knowledge about Response to Instruction/Intervention (RTI) as it relates to mathematics, and to help them consider and then act on their critical roles within the RTI process in the classroom and the school. Here is information that can be put to immediate use within K-8 classrooms in order to implement RTI in mathematics successfully and to meet the instructional goals in mathematics for all students.
The authors, a mathematics teacher and a special education teacher, provide clear definitions of common language, core, implementation practices, and procedures as related to or involved with RTI, and show readers the connections among teachers’ knowledge and skills and their important use with RTI. Included is a continuous case study of a mathematics teacher as she implements RTI in her classroom; clear, evidence-based content; scenarios; examples; resources and activities; plus modeling, description, and reflection on the key learning outcomes of RTI.
