  4. RTI in Secondary Schools

    Perhaps more than any other single initiative, response to intervention (RTI) is likely to restructure secondary schools in a profound and fundamental way. While the impact of RTI alone will be significant, when coupled with differentiated lessons for all Tier 1 instruction and supported by up-to-date instructional technologies, that impact is likely to drastically refocus instruction. RTI in Secondary Schools explores actual implementation experiences to help readers identify concerns, and it suggests solutions for the complex challenges that will need to be addressed during the RTI implementation process.

  7. Removing the Mask

    In Removing the Mask Paul D. Slocumb, Ed.D. and Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D. present an identification model that is based on a new paradigm. They maintain that environmental factors often mask giftedness in students from poverty, making their gifted attributes unrecognisable in schools that operate using the hidden rules of middle class. Removing the Mask is a highly instructive book for the practicing professional who is committed to finding and serving the best and brightest students from the culture of poverty. It also offers suggestions on how to help gifted/talented students from poverty be successful and remain in gifted/talented programs once the students have been identified.
