RTI Blog: Capitalizing on the ‘Core’ in Common Core State Standards
In her latest blog post, Dawn Miller argues that the infrastructure we have been building when implementing RtI better positions us to meet the rigor the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) set for our students. She notes the foundation created with the essential problem-solving process of RtI can be applied to discussions about curriculum, instruction, and student learning in order for students to be independent with the skills associated with career and college readiness. She then shares some thoughts for leadership and professional development related to RTI and the CCSS as a springboard to a productive conversation for you and your district or building in preparation for the school year
