"We all know that the knowledge base on RTI for middle and high school has been fragmented and diffuse. It no longer is. This book candidly synthesizes and weaves together relevant research and information that can inform best practices in RTI at the secondary level. Honest and pragmatic, it should be essential reading."--Russell Gersten, PhD, Director, Instructional Research Group, University of Oregon
"There are RTI models for elementary schools, but what about older students? Reed, Wexler, and Vaughn provide a practical guide to RTI implementation in secondary schools. Finally, a resource that can help middle and high schools to be more systematically aggressive about kids’ learning."--Timothy Shanahan, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Illinois at Chicago
"At long last, an RTI resource that addresses the unique needs and challenges of secondary educators. This practical reference for teachers and administrators could easily become the focus of a professional development program. It features illustrative scenarios and concrete recommendations that can be put to use immediately to plan and implement RTI at the school or district level."--Tina Angelo, MEd, manager of adolescent literacy, Houston (Texas) Independent School District
