RTI in Literacy—Responsive and Comprehensive
Peter H. Johnston, editor
A fresh perspective that provides literacy educators with the theory and practice to develop effective RTI programs in literacy.
Until recently, most books on Response to Intervention have taken the perspective of special educators or educational psychologists, emphasizing the identification of learning disability rather than prevention. This book adopts a preventive stance, offering a critical analysis of problematic current practices, along with clear examples and logic for more appropriate practices.
