PLCs, DI, & RTI: A Tapestry for School Change
Stoehr, Judy; Banks, Maria; Allen, Linda
Rather than buying individual books about professional learning communities (PLCs), differentiated instruction (DI), and Response to Intervention (RTI), invest wisely in one resource that synthesizes all three. The text uses a tapestry analogy to weave together these critical topics to form a comprehensive framework for achieving continuous school improvement. The result is a stronger foundation for administrators' leadership direction and teachers' instructional decisions based on: (1) Utilizing PLCs as the framework for sharing new strategies and understandings; (2) Discussing data collected through assessments; and (3) Evaluating data against benchmarks. Included are walk-through checklists, learning-style surveys, and examples that illustrate practical strategies for integrating DI and RTI and collaborating with colleagues to assess student learning and adapt instruction and interventions. This timely resource efficiently provides all the information you need to optimize instruction for outstanding results. The following chapters are contained in this book: (1) Elements and Principles of the Integrated Model; (2) Professional Learning Communities; (3) Differentiated Instruction; (4) Response to Intervention; and (5) Weaving a Tapestry for School Change. Appended are: (1) Forms and Templates; (2) Activities and Protocols; and (3) Resources.
