This newest resource, from The SIOP Model series authors Jana Echevarria and MaryEllen Vogt, assists all mainstream teachers and administrators to design effective RTI programs, using the SIOP Model, providing the appropriate type of instruction that English Learners need and deserve.

Response to Intervention (RTI) and English Learners: Making it Happen, written to assist teachers and administrators to better meet the needs of the increasing group of English Learner students in U.S. schools, includes background on Response to Intervention, explains the linguistic and academic issues that English Learners face, and covers appropriate and effective Tier 1, 2, and 3 interventions for English Learners using the eight components of the SIOP Model. The book provides use-tomorrow ideas and activities for implementing these eight components of the SIOP Model in an RTI framework; with special considerations and recommendations for aligning current practices in adolescent literacy with RTI programs for Secondary ELs. Even if educators are not familiar with the SIOP Model, they will find this as a useful resource.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"As an administrator of an ESL program, [the book] is very appealing. It would be a good 'book study' for a school improvement team that is looking into reasons for and solutions to an achievement gap between their ELs and general education students."

- Vickie Damon, ESL Director, Renton School District, Renton, Washington

"This book is easy to read offers ample opportunity for discussion and brainstorming. It is ideal for in-service or book-study purposes among teachers."

- Mirta Silvia Torres, ESE/Student Services, Lee County Public Schools, Fort Myers, Florida

"The authors have done a nice job of integrating the needs of ELs with the framework of RTI while keeping a focus on needs of learners (not teachers)."

"This book will contribute to the validation and recognition of the unique needs language learners bring to our schools, and does an excellent job of advocating for those needs to be met."

-Karla Stone, Ph.D., Title III Development Specialist, Robbinsdale Area Schools, New Hope, Minnesota
