A one-stop source of proven reading strategies to use with RTI!
This second edition of a best-selling resource helps general and special education teachers integrate approaches for strengthening reading skills with procedures for Response to Intervention (RTI). Based on the latest research, these practical instructional strategies can be used with students with learning disabilities of any kind as well as with any student who struggles in reading.
This resource provides highly effective strategies for elementary and middle school reading instruction and includes RTI case studies that show how the strategies work within an RTI framework. Focusing on the critical areas of reading instruction identified in the National Reading Panel's report, this book helps educators:
- Implement early literacy and brain-compatible reading instruction and assessment
- Develop phonological and phonemic instruction
- Promote effective progress monitoring in reading
- Build vocabulary and reading fluency
- Boost reading comprehension, especially in the content areas
This vital resource provides teachers with a ready reference of interventions to provide targeted reading instruction for students with learning difficulties.
The authors have updated the research throughout, including references to research about reading and the brain which have been conducted since the publication of the first edition. They have added information about IDEA legislation and RTI initiatives. In addition, explanations of RTI, RTI case studies, and new instructional strategies were added to each chapter. The case studies show teachers how to implement intervention and track student progress. New figures and charts were added to support the material on RTI.
