Response to Intervention: A Practical Guide for Every Teacher shows general and special education teachers how to use research-based interventions effectively to individualize instruction, monitor individual student progress, and implement strategies to meet the specific needs of the students. Today's teachers' roles and responsibilities have been transformed by NCLB and the reauthorization of IDEA in order to benefit many children who are challenged by their academic content. Prompted by several legislative measures, response to intervention (RTI) provides strategies for documenting the existence or non-existence of a learning disability. All educators will become involved in implementation of programs to demonstrate how students respond on an individual basis to various educational interventions¨most often in the general education classroom. This resource is intended as a practical guide to assist teachers with the challenge of what, for many, will be a new instructional procedure. Offering vignettes, examples, and forms based on the problem-solving and standards-based approach to RTI, this practical guide gives teachers the basic and necessary steps to successfully provide their students with a fair and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment.
