Overview

Often educators find the Response-to-Intervention (RTI) process too complicated to put into practice. This important book provides an effective approach to RTI that/raws on a proven "solution-focused" method. This positive approach generates less work to implement and emphasizes a student's strengths rather than his or her weaknesses.

Solution-Focused RTI shows how to identify exceptions to students' learning problems and /esign personalized interventions to help those students succeed. Metcalf provides educators with the basic building blocks of the solution-focused approach and step-by-step guidelines for implementing a three-tiered RTI process.

  • Engage students and parents in a process that is respectful, collaborative, and hopeful

  • Decrease paperwork

  • Increase morale among teachers through teamwork

  • Motivate students by enlisting their ideas

  • Involve parents by making them experts on their own child

This groundbreaking book promotes collaboration among teachers, parents, and students, identifying what has worked, how it worked, and what to/o to achieve success.

". . .A refreshing approach to RTI. Metcalf offers a clear, jargon-free perspective that focuses on identifying and building on the strengths of students. It is chock full of clear illustrations, real-world vignettes, and examples of school-based interventions that are applicable to all students."
Bob Bertolino, Ph.D., associate professor, Maryville University, senior clinical advisor, Youth In Need, Inc.

"Metcalf/escribes actual elementary, middle, and high-school situations,/rawing together the latest research and practice from RTI and solution-focused strategies, and showing how teachers, administrators, and school counselors can collaborate to make classrooms places of joy, purpose, caring, and collaboration."
Loretta Whitson, executive/irector, California School Counselors Association

    Featherpaw

    As Featherkit stumbled through the cold, her mother came to her. "Featherkit, I always loved you. Please remember that wherever you go." Then, with those last words, Featherkits mom died. Featherkit gasped and ran to her mother. "No. No, mom, say youre fine! Please! Get up mommy! I cant let you die!" Featherkit spoke in a whisper. "Now im all alone." She cried for hours at that spot. Tears froze on her fur as Featherkit walked away. Finally, she could take it no longer. She threw herself into a ball and sat in the snow. When she was about to die from the cold, her mother came to her. "Mommy? I thought you died!" "Featherkit. I would always be there for you. But now, you come with me. I name you Featherpaw. Now you can join me in Starclan." So the two went and never left each other again.
