Response to Intervention and Precision Teaching Creating Synergy in the Classroom
by Kent Johnson and Elizabeth M. Street
Paperback / 206 pages
Successful implementation of response to intervention (RTI) for academic skills problems requires rigorous progress monitoring. This book shows how the proven instructional technology known as precision teaching (PT) can facilitate progress monitoring while building K–12 students' fluency in reading, writing, math, and the content areas. Detailed instructions help general and special education teachers use PT to target specific skills at all three tiers of RTI, and incorporate it into project-based learning. Of crucial importance for RTI implementers, the book provides explicit procedures for measuring and charting learning outcomes during each PT session, and using the data to fine-tune instruction. Reproducible charts and other useful tools can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
