This laminated, six-page (tri-fold) guide clearly presents six common elements of RTI and DI that reflect the best practices in addressing classroom diversity within a standards-based curriculum, and provides examples for each. These include:
... Student-centered activities
... Flexible grouping
... Learning centers/stations
... Ongoing student assessment
... Data-driven decision making
... Collaboration and teaming
Incorporating some or all of these elements into lesson plans has a proven beneficial impact on teaching and learning for all students.
A valuable tool for general and special education teachers, RTI and DI also offers easy-to-implement strategies for planning, including opportunities for teachers to meet and plan together; suggestions for effective lesson plan design, such as active lessons and authentic practice; and caveats for learning.
