Today’s classrooms are overcrowded, and school systems struggle with tight budgets. This book presents research-based RTI strategies that will help teachers move beyond those issues to provide all students with the chance they need to succeed.

Solution Tree, a leading educational professional development company, and the National Association of Elementary School Principals have released Closing the RTI Gap, a new book that gives a clear understanding of poverty and culture and explores how response to intervention (RTI) can close achievement gaps related to those issues.

All children should have equal access to highly qualified teachers, a strong curriculum, and research-based instructional methods. Yet in today’s crowded classrooms, that isn’t always the reality. The influence of culture and poverty cannot be overestimated; students facing such hurdles will often experience inequality in education.

This groundbreaking book will help teachers and school districts understand why RTI is so important and how to implement effective RTI strategies. Closing the RTI Gap not only examines the critical planning phase of RTI but also previews common pitfalls of implementation.

“The importance of this book cannot be overstated,” said Jeffrey C. Jones, president and CEO of Solution Tree. “Today’s classrooms are overcrowded, and school systems struggle with tight budgets. This book presents research-based RTI strategies that will help teachers move beyond those issues to provide all students with the chance they need to succeed.”

Closing the RTI Gap was written by Donna Walker Tileston, EdD, the founder and president of Strategic Teaching and Learning in Dallas, Texas, and a recognized leader in education. Dr. Walker Tileston has been involved in brain research and the factors that inhibit learning or increase the brain’s ability to put information into long-term memory.
