RTI strategies in the upper grades are different from those in the lower grades. But how, and why? How can you embed effective RTI principles into content-area classes—reducing or eliminating the need for separate intervention classes? And how can you improve growth, not only for struggling students but for all students?

You’ll learn all this and more from Dr. Denise Gibbs, author of RTI for Middle and High School: Strategies and Structures for Literacy Success. In this free webinar, participants will:

  • Learn three critical differences between RTI in the elementary and upper grades
  • Solve the scheduling problem by embedding RTI principles into all content classes
  • Understand how content literacy strategies will foster growth for every student
