The Teaching Revolution
RTI, Technology, and Differentiation Transform Teaching for the 21st Century



November 2012 | 192 pages | Corwin
This book is a cutting-edge, provocative discussion of the coming transformation in education. A revolution is taking place in classrooms today, based on the cross-fertilization of three major instructional innovations, the ôthree sisters:ö differentiated instruction, RTI, and technology. Each of these has, or soon will, impact classrooms drastically, but the ôwhole is greater than the sum of the parts:ö that is, the whole impact of these three is many times as influential as the impact of any one of these factors individually. Because of the increasing emphasis on differentiation, RTI, and technology-based instruction, teachers are teaching in new and different ways. These innovations all address the ever-present pressures on teachers at all grade levels to meet/exceed AYP, and teachers are hungry for innovative instructional ideas that will assist them to do so. The authors draw on the growing 21st Century Skills movement to address these three instructional innovations together.

“This book provides a great deal of relevant and timely information on several critically important topics – technology in the classroom, differentiated instruction, and RTI. The authors supported their recommendations with research and evidence, and they bring these ‘hot topics’ together in a manner I have not seen previously."

Judy Brunner, Professor
Missouri State University, Springfield, MO

"This book clearly fulfills its stated purpose of identifying and linking the ‘3 sisters’ of educational reform: RTI, technology, and differentiated instruction. While there is much literature available on each of the three topics, I am not familiar with any book linking them together in this way. The book is easy to read as the interrelatedness of the topics is woven into the chapters. The case studies and resources included in the boxes in the chapters are strengths of the book."

Laurie Emery, Principal
Old Vail Middle School, Vail, AZ

"I think the web references were great. I actually went and looked at how I could use some of these things in my math classroom. This chapter is full of information that is enlightening and would inspire a teacher to think: 'How could I . . . what if I changed.'"

Amanda McKee, Mathematics Teacher
Johnsonville High School, SC

“I believe the book does make a distinct contribution to the field by showing the complimentary overlap of the three innovations. The relevancy of the material is explained clearly throughout the book, with suggestions as to how to get started in implementing or becoming familiar with the innovations discussed.”

Linda R. Vogel, Associate Professor
University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, CO

"The learner-centered approaches in this book can be implemented to intrigue students with customized assessment and instruction for daily planning and targeted interventions. This treasure trove of ideas will bring you the most recent research-based practices for cutting edge teaching and learning."

Rita King, Educational Consultant and Trainer
