Don't let the revolution in math education pass your teachers by!

By now, most teachers have a shelf full of books, articles, and reports on the Common Core and RTI. But where's the resource that addresses how the two fit together? Individually, the Common Core and RTI are formidable enough. Together, they create a “perfect storm” of challenges, with most teachers left wondering where to turn first.

Finally, here's a guide that distills the central elements of the Common Core and RTI into a single, manageable resource that provides strategies for serving all students. You will find: Real-world scenarios based on actual school-based issues; Multiple classroom-ready work samples; Content-area applications of RTI, including math vocabulary and literacy; A focus on instructional technology, with references to online resources in every chapter; Preparation for future developments in state and national educational policy

With additional guidance on students with special needs, behavioral issues, English language learners, and parent involvement, this all-in-one resource gives your teachers a distinct advantage in providing the superior math instruction all students deserve.

“Burton and Kappenberg have done a great service to teachers by combining Common Core and RTI into one easy-to-use text.”

“Anyone involved in the development of mathematic teachers and who is currently a mathematics teacher will find this book to be a resource to effectively unify instructional strategies to teach all students.”

Universal Design and Mathematics: A Framework for RTI and Implementing the Common Core

Universal design and mathematics: A framework for RTI and implementing the common core

By addressing the diversity of learners at the point of curriculum development (rather than as an afterthought or retrofit), Universal Design for Learning is a framework that enables educators to develop curricula that truly “leave no child behind” by maintaining high expectations for all students while effectively meeting diverse learning needs and monitoring student progress.

—CAST (1999–2012, para. 7)

In this chapter you will learn:

  • A description of the brain-based research behind Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
  • The principles of UDL
  • Some specific examples demonstrating how to use the principles of UDL to assist struggling students to reach academic success as set by the Common ...
