Instructional design and delivery become even more critical as schools implement Response to Intervention (RTI). The fundamental concept of RTI is that students receive high-quality instruction and interventions that enable them to be successful. RTI has the advantage of broad application—it can potentially benefit all students. Likewise, this book is about high-quality instruction and interventions that are available for all students and grade levels. Teach All, Reach All complements the fundamental premise of RTI.
The book is organized around typical concerns and questions that teachers often face, such as:
This user-friendly book offers a variety of options for addressing these and 20 other common questions, plus an entire section dedicated to tips for effective lesson delivery.
Our teachers follow the TGIF model to plan effective, engaging instruction for students and love the easy-to-remember "TGIF" as it guides their instruction daily.

All educators would likely agree that "teaching is easy if you don't know how, but very difficult if you do." This book takes the mystery out of teaching and fills in the science so that teachers get the result they need to enjoy their profession. As a former university professor and experienced educator, I would have loved to have had this book available to assist in my efforts to help both novice and experienced teachers build their tool kit as they learned the skills and strategies to become effective, competent teachers. This book is chock-full of easy-to-use, proven strategies as well as several that take a little more effort but may produce significantly better results. All educators need this information to guide their lesson design and delivery. It makes the difference between "struggling with" and "enjoying" teaching because educators have the confidence of "doing it right" and getting the results teachers and students need—and deserve—from their efforts.
