Overview

Phillip M. Weishaar and Mary K. Weishaar

Implementing Response to Intervention in Reading Within the Elementary Classroom

Implementing Response to Intervention provides elementary teachers with specific, clear guidance on how to implement Response to Intervention principles in reading without the use of extra classroom resources.

Focusing on do-able, clear steps for implementation, authors Phillip M. Weishaar and Mary Konya Weishaar believe that any teacher can learn to implement the core principles of Response to Intervention in the area of reading using the most basic resources: the classroom teacher, core curriculum materials, and the willingness to help children succeed. Bridging the practices and theories used in both general education and special education classrooms, this book covers topics including how to implement reading assessment for screening and progress monitoring, how to use assessment data in making decisions, and how to meet student needs based on assessment results.

"Provides a straightforward, well-organized, thorough sequence of topics to build skills for teachers to implement assessment to determine response to intervention."

- Jill Sharkey, Professor, University of CA, Santa Barbara

"Pre-service, in-service teachers and special educators will turn to this practical well-written book to help them understand what to expect and how to maximize the probability of success...just what I have been searching for over the past several years."

- Chhanda Islam, Professor, Murray State University

Phillip M. Weishaar was a special education administrator for 28 years and a special education teacher for six years before becoming assistant professor in the Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville.

Dr. Weishaar is the author of several articles and coauthor of a special education administration textbook Inclusive Educational Administration: A Case Study Approach, (Waveland Press, 2007). His areas of interest include special education administration, system-wide change, outcome assessment, and a unitary system of special and general education. Dr. Weishaar earned a Ph.D. in Education from St. Louis University in 1984.
