RTI and the Adolescent Reader
Responsive Literacy Instruction in Secondary Schools
William G. Brozo
Bill Brozo has written an honest book that will be useful for anyone considering implementing a response to instruction (RTI) initiative at the high school level.
—Richard L. Allington, University of Tennessee
This groundbreaking book by noted adolescent literacy expert William Brozo explores the efficacy of RTI for meeting the literacy needs of middle and high school students. To provide a strong foundation for instruction, Brozo defines RTI and explains why and how it is considered a viable intervention model for adolescent readers. He then challenges educators to reframe RTI as responsive literacy instruction, so the central aim is quality instruction that’s responsive to adolescents’ unique needs and literacy growth.
To help educators see how RTI can work for adolescents, chapters offer
- Evidence-based strategies to meet the literacy needs of all adolescents
- Glimpses into secondary schools that have used RTI
- Questions that spark reflection and application of big ideas
