Additional Book Details

"Combining PLCs, DI AND RTI into a tapestry for school change is a brilliant idea. It weaves three predominant threads together into wholeness for teachers and students. The PLC thread provides the collegial support for substantive change to occur; the Response to Intervention thread exposes a structure that ensures student success; and the Differentiated Instruction thread highlights appropriate responses to learners′ talents and needs."

—Robin Fogarty, President

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 administrators′ leadership direction and teachers′ instructional decisions based on:

Utilizing PLCs as the framework for sharing new strategies and understandingsDiscussing data collected through assessmentsEvaluating data against benchmarks

Included are walk-through checklists, learning-style surveys, and examples that illustrate practical strategies for integrating DI and RTI and collaborating with colleagues to assess student learning and adapt instruction and interventions. This timely resource efficiently provides all the information you need to optimize instruction for outstanding results.
