Examining Response to Intervention (RTI) Models in Secondary Education

Book Description

Response to Intervention (RTI) is an intervention model designed to assist all students regardless of their academic ability. It seeks to assist students who are struggling in academics by providing them with targeted assistance in the form of tutoring, pull-out services, and differentiated classroom instruction. Examining Response to Intervention (RTI) Models in Secondary Education highlights the application of the RTI model to secondary schools through instructional strategies and real-world examples of how this model can be used at the middle and high school levels. Through a series of informative and timely chapters written by global educational specialists, this publication is ideally designed for use by middle and high school teachers and school administrators as well as professors and students in upper-level Educational Leadership and Secondary Education programs.
