In Closing the RTI Gap: Why Poverty and Culture Count, Donna Walker Tileston not only explains to readers why RTI is so important (defining key terms along the way), but also shows how they can achieve successful implementation in their own schools, particularly in the context of poverty and culture. All children should have equal access to highly qualified teachers, a strong curriculum, and research-based instructional methods. RTI can make that hope a reality. Why should teachers implement a response to intervention (RTI) model? Rather than wait for students to fail, misidentify students with special needs, or disproportionally represent certain ethnic groups, RTI offers schools a chance to ensure that all students achieve high levels of learning. The influence of culture and poverty cannot be overestimated; students facing such hurdles will often experience inequality in education. Response to intervention, when implemented correctly, provides these students the chance they need to succeed. However, RTI is only as strong as the planning and research that go into developing individual school plans.

Review:

The author raises the important, critical questions educators should consider to maximize powerful RTI strategies in helping to close the achievement gap for children in poverty and from different cultures, and she provides practical, hands-on solutions for doing so. Additionally, she demonstrates how RTI strategies can become an integral component of school improvement. This book provides a useful blueprint for all educators in implementing RTI as a means to helping all children including our most vulnerable youngsters learn. --Gail Connelly, Executive Director, National Association of Elementary School Principals
