A framework for weaving common threads into an artful solution Rather than buying individual books about professional learning communities (PLCs), differentiated instruction (DI), and Response to Intervention (RTI), invest wisely in one resource that synthesizes all three. The text uses a tapestry analogy to weave together these critical topics to form a comprehensive framework for achieving continuous school improvement. The result is a stronger foundation for school leaders’ and teachers’ instructional decisions based on: Utilizing PLCs as the framework for sharing new strategies and understandings Discussing data collected through assessments Evaluating data against benchmarks

Until about two decades ago, the study of writing systems and their relationship to literacy acquisition was sparse and generally modeled after studies of English language learners. This situation is now changing. As the worldwide demand for literacy continues to grow, researchers from different countries with different language backgrounds have begun examining the connection between their writing systems and literacy acquisition. This text, which derives from a NATO sponsored conference on orthography and literacy, brings together the research of 70 scholars from across the world--the largest assemblage of such experts to date. Their findings are grouped into three parts, as follows: Part I, Literacy Acquisition in Different Writing Systems, describes the relationship between orthography and literacy in twenty-five orthographic systems. This section serves as a handy reference source for understanding the orthographies of languages as diverse as Arabic, Chinese, English, Icelandic, Kannada, and Kishwahili. Part II, Literacy Acquisition From a Cross-Linguistic Perspective, makes direct comparisons of literacy acquisition in English and other orthographic systems. The overall conclusion that emerges from these eight chapters is that the depth of an orthographic system does influence literacy acquisition primarily by slowing down the acquisition of reading skills. Even so, studies show that dyslexic readers can be found across all orthographic systems whether shallow or deep, which shows that dyslexia also has internal cognitive and biological components. Part III, Literacy Acquisition: Instructional Perspectives, explores literacy acquisition from developmental and instructional perspectives and ends with a look into the future of literacy research. This Handbook is appropriate for scholars, researchers, and graduate students in such diverse fields as cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, literacy education, English as a second language, and communication disorders.

In today's diverse and inclusive classrooms, teachers face the challenge of delivering instruction that is effective and accessible to students with a wide range of needs, abilities, and learning styles. Newly updated for 2014, RTI & DI: Response to Intervention & Differentiated Instruction, by Helene Hanson, shows teachers how they can meet this challenge using the best practices of differentiated instruction (DI) within the framework of Response To Intervention (RTI). This laminated, six-page (tri-fold) guide clearly presents six common elements of RTI and DI that reflect the best practices in addressing classroom diversity within a standards-based curriculum, and provides examples for each. These include: ¿Student-centered activities ¿Flexible grouping ¿Learning centers/stations ¿Ongoing student assessment ¿Data-driven decision making ¿Collaboration and teaming Incorporating some or all of these elements into lesson plans has a proven beneficial impact on teaching and learning for all students. A valuable tool for general and special education teachers, RTI and DI also offers easy-to-implement strategies for planning, including opportunities for teachers to meet and plan together; suggestions for effective lesson plan design, such as active lessons and authentic practice; and caveats for learning.
