Designed for practicing and preservice teachers and focused on strengthening literacy in both primary and secondary inclusion classrooms, this book emphasizes programming for generalization and maintenance of reading and writing skills. Sheila Alber-Morgan presents empirically validated practices for teaching language arts such as guided notes, response cards, peer-mediated instruction, self-monitoring, direct instruction, curriculum-based measurement, and response to intervention. Readers will also find motivating activities for integrating language arts for enrichment or remediation. "Using RTI to Teach Literacy to Diverse Learners, K-8" is an ideal working tool that allows teachers to read about and immediately implement the author's instructional procedures for reading and writing in their own classrooms.
