RTI Strategies for Secondary Teachers
A "strategy bank" for secondary teachers
While planning lessons, many teachers wonder, "If I try this, will it work?" "Will I lose ground in teaching the concept?" "Will it help my students make the grade, pass the state tests, or get into college?"
Teachers want solutions, not theory. This book offers a bank of proven RTI strategies for Grades 6–12 that will elevate test scores and improve student achievement for all students, not just struggling learners. The author explains how RTI fits into secondary education and applies it to math, reading comprehension, writing, and more. She summarizes Tiers One, Two, and Three in teacher-friendly language and includes
- Easy-to-implement and practical interventions
- Sample lesson plans and visual models
- Examples of how to address budgeting, staffing, performance, and student culture constraints
The grouping strategies included in each lesson plan improve students' social skills and, in concert with other circumstances, can reduce referrals to special education. RTI Strategies for Secondary Teachers will help teachers take their instruction up a notch in every classroom and reduce stress in the process.
"RTI for Secondary Teachers is a valuable resource brimming with concrete real-world strategies. Susan Fitzell provides sample lesson plans designed to reach struggling learners, but they can be easily adapted to reach even the most capable learners. Her rich template for success demystifies Response to Intervention at the secondary level and offers a treasure chest of strategies for reaching students in any tier."
