The Essential Guide to RTI: An Integrated, Evidence-Based Approach
This resource provides practical tools and step-by-step guidelines for school and district teams to effectively implement Response to Intervention (RTI) with all students—including students with disabilities and English language learners—within an integrated, standards-aligned system.
WestEd’s Silvia DeRuvo, veteran educator and RTI technical assistance provider, gives schools and districts the tools they need to assess a school’s or a district’s readiness to begin implementation, and offers extensive resources to help identify appropriate data-based decision-making tools for effective implementation.
The book also provides dozens of effective research-based interventions and instructional strategies that teachers can put in place immediately in their classrooms and offers guidelines for selecting additional evidence-based curricula and strategies to support students with diverse needs.
The Essential Guide to RTI includes a wealth of information for teachers, providing:
- Evidence-based practices that foster good teaching and positive outcomes for every student
- Step-by-step guidelines to facilitate the change necessary for initial implementation
- Concrete advice on developing an effective action plan
- Processes for identifying essential standards that focus instruction for all students
- Best practices for implementing schoolwide positive behavioral supports (PBS)
In addition, the book includes tools that support effective collaborative practices and provides a framework for instructional models that integrate special education and services for English learners within the RTI structure.
