This book presents a schoolwide model of instructional support designed to make the most of available time, resources, and personnel—one that is also fully compatible with other problem-solving models, such as response to intervention. The authors provide a comprehensive and cohesive framework for linking assessment and intervention. They show how to interweave evidence-based instruction with targeted professional development and other components that support improved learning outcomes for all K–8 students. Helpful tables describe dozens of research-based assessments and interventions in reading, writing, and math. In a large-size format with lay-flat binding to facilitate photocopying, the volume includes more than 20 reproducible worksheets and forms. The companion website features additional reproducibles and supplemental materials for use in conjunction with the book. This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series.
