"This authoritative book analyzes the key components of RTI (response to intervention) and the characteristics of successful implementation. It summarizes the research on interventions and data-based decision making in core content areas and for different student populations. A much-needed resource, the book will help practitioners reflect on their current practices and optimize the promise of RTI for supporting all students' academic and behavioral success. The volume is clearly organized and grounded in the latest empirical evidence. It explains the basics of RTI and describes research-based practices in multi-tier intervention, assessment, and data-based decision making. Methods for evaluating RTI service delivery and enhancing intervention fideliry are discussed. Chapters on specific content areas - reading, writing, math, and behavior - present effective approaches to instruction and intervention that are compatible with a multi-tier framework. Intervention protocols are outlined and illustrated with examples, and guidelines are provided for selecting appropriate interventions for particular situations and grade levels (K-12). The contributors draw on state-of-the-art knowledge about the nature of learning difficulties and how to prevent and remediate them at the level of the whole class, small group, or individual student. Every chapter also identifies important directions for future research." "School psychologists, administrators, special educators, and classroom teachers will find indispensable guidance and tools in this book.

"With this in-depth resource from leaders in the field, educational researchers, administrators, and decision makers will be able to select a classroom observation system that matches their needs - whether they choose from available systems or design their own. Readers will explore nine field-tested observation systems, each with a different focus, such as: assessing the effectiveness of early reading instruction for English-language learners; evaluating reading instruction in general education classrooms that include students with learning disabilities and emotional/behavioral disorders; observing classroom action and interaction and how they affect reading lessons; improving the writing performance of students who struggle; and reviewing schoolwide literacy outcomes and determining professional development needs." "Each chapter examines the development of one system or method, describes its field testing, includes solid research on reliability and validity, weighs its strengths and limitations, and (in some cases) includes the actual tool discussed. A careful compilation of critical information, this book will help educational stakeholders choose the most effective systems and methods for assessing literacy outcomes, identifying methods that work, and highlighting directions for change."--Jacket
