This highly practical resource and text presents 70 interventions that have been demonstrated to improve the classroom learning environment, academic achievement, and student behavior and social competence. Each intervention is presented in a brief, standardized format with step-by-step procedures that can easily be implemented by Pre-K-12 teachers and other school-based professionals. The volume includes best-practice guidelines for designing, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based school interventions, as well as strategies for combining multiple interventions to create a comprehensive program at the individual, class, or schoolwide level.

This book is an excellent tool for assisting general education teachers who are beginning the RTI process or just want some assistance with some students in their classes. It has great academic and behavior strats. They are easy to implement and document for progress monitoring purposes.
One of the best evidence-based school interventions book that I have read. Interventions are layed out step by step each with guidelines on how to monitor progress for the intervention. Many interventions are group interventions, but many can be adapted to individual students. This book is a must have for any individual/school wanting to have a resource on hand to help them implement evidence-based interventions as part of the RTI process.
