Description

Implementing Response to Intervention in Reading Within the Elementary Classroom provides elementary teachers with specific, clear guidance on how to implement Response to Intervention principles in reading without the use of extra classroom resources. Focusing on do-able, clear steps for implementation, authors Phillip M. Weishaar and Mary Konya Weishaar believe that any teacher can learn to implement the core principles of Response to Intervention in the area of reading using the most basic resources: the classroom teacher, core curriculum materials, and the willingness to help children succeed. Bridging the practices and theories used in both general education and special education classrooms, this text covers topics including how to implement reading assessment for screening and progress monitoring, how to use assessment data in making decisions, and how to meet student needs based on assessment results.
