No Quick Fix, The RTI Edition
Rethinking Literacy Programs in America’s Elementary Schools
Richard L. Allington and Sean A. Walmsley, editors
No Quick Fix is the classic text that summarized effective intervention models, and may well have been the launching pad for RTI. It is a "must-read" for anyone attempting to implement an effective RTI model.
— John Pikulski, former IRA president and author of Reading Intervention for Early Success
Now that U.S. federal education policy has caught up with the research and reform models first presented here over a decade ago, this special edition is of critical importance to today’s teachers, principals, administrators, policymakers, and anyone interested in creating schools where all students learn to read. Outlining the key factors essential for effective reform of early literacy programs, this groundbreaking resource presents
- A framework for the comprehensive redesign of early reading instruction and intervention services
- Proven national models of early intervention, including Reading Recovery, along with their impact on reducing referrals for special education services
- A unified intervention delivery model that calls for an end to fragmented special services
- A more cost-effective means of intervention that meets the needs of struggling students
