Understanding RTI in Mathematics: Proven Methods and Applications
Gersten, Russell, Ed.; Newman-Gonchar, Rebecca, Ed.
Brookes Publishing Company
Edited by National Math Panel veteran Russell Gersten with contributions by all of the country's leading researchers on RTI and math, this cutting-edge text blends the existing evidence base with practical guidelines for RTI implementation. Current and future RTI coordinators, curriculum developers, math specialists, and department heads will get the best, most up-to-date guidance on key facets of RTI in math: (1) conducting valid and reliable universal screening in mathematics; (2) using evidence-based practices to provide a strong general education curriculum for effective Tier 1 instruction; (3) implementing explicit, research-based teaching practices for students who need Tier 2 and 3 instruction; (4) monitoring students' progress with high-quality tools and measures; (5) motivating and engaging struggling students receiving Tier 2 and 3 instruction; (6) teaching students to use an array of visual representations to help them solve math problems; (7) tailoring RTI for every grade level, from kindergarten through high school; and (8) using RTI to target specific mathematical proficiencies and concepts, such as number sense, word problems, algebra, and ratios and proportions. Filled with vignettes, accessible summaries of the most recent studies, and best-practice guidelines for making the most of RTI, this comprehensive research volume is ideal for use as a textbook or as a key resource to guide decision makers. Readers will have the knowledge base they need to strengthen mathematics instruction with proven RTI practices--and help ensure better math outcomes for students at every grade level. An introduction, "Issues and Themes in Mathematics Response to Intervention Research and Implementation," is included. Contents of this book are: (1) Introduction of Response to Intervention in Mathematics (Paul J. Riccomini and Gregory W. Smith); (2) Universal Screening for Students in Mathematics for the Primaryrades: The Emerging Research Base (Russell Gersten, Joseph A. Dimino, and Kelly Haymond); (3) Understanding the R in RTI: What We Know and What We Need to Know About Measuring Student Response in Mathematics (Ben Clarke, Erica S. Lembke, David D. Hampton, and Elise Hendricker); (4) Pursuing Instructional Coherence: Can Strong Tier 1 Systems Better Meet the Needs of the Range of Students in General Education Settings? (Ben Clarke, Chris T. Doabler, Scott K. Baker, Hank Fien, Kathleen Jungjohann, and Mari Strand Cary); (5) Tier 2 Early Numeracy Number Sense Interventions for Kindergarten and First-Grade Students with Mathematics Difficulties (Diane Pedrotty Bryant, Greg Roberts, Brian R. Bryant, and Leann DiAndreth-Elkins); (6) A Two-Tiered RTI System for Improving Word-Problem Performance Among Students at Risk for Mathematics Difficulty (Lynn S. Fuchs, Douglas Fuchs, and Robin F. Schumacher); (7) Effective Instructional Practices in Mathematics for Tier 2 and Tier 3 Instruction (Madhavi Jayanthi and Russell Gersten); (8) Middle School Students' Thinking about Ratios and Proportions (Asha K. Jitendra, John Woodward, and Jon R. Star); (9) Using Visual Representations to Instruct and Intervene with Secondary Mathematics (Bradley S. Witzel, Deborah V. Mink, and Paul J. Riccomini); (10) Double-Dose Algebra as a Strategy for Improving Mathematics Achievement of Struggling Students: Evidence from Chicago Public Schools (Takako Nomi and Elaine Allensworth); (11) The Role of Motivation in Secondary Mathematics Instruction: Implications for RTI (John Woodward); and (12) Practical Considerations in the Implementation of RTI in Mathematics (Lauren Campsen, Alex Granzin, and Douglas Carnine). An index is included. [Foreword by Sharon Vaughn.]
