Synopsis

Implementing Response to Intervention in Reading Within the Elementary Classroom by Phillip M. Weishaar, Mary Konya Weishaar

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.

Reviews

Comprehensive and valuable to a teacher wanting to start implementing RTI. Provides a straightforward, well-organized, thorough sequence of topics to build skills for teachers to implement assessment to determine response to intervention. Jill Sharkey, Professor, University of CA, Santa Barbara

Pre-service, in-service teachers and special educators will turn to this practical well-written book to help them understand what to expect and how to maximize the probability of success. I will definitely adopt this text. It is just what I have been searching for over the past several years. Chhanda Islam, Professor, Murray State University
