Mathematics ​Intervention Resources for Elementary

 

Book Resources

  • Developing Number Knowledge: Assessment, Teaching and Intervention with 7-11 year olds (Math Recovery) by Robert J Wright, David Ellemor-Collins and Pamela D Tabor (Dec 6, 2011) - The book offers a coherent, up-to-date approach emphasizing computational fluency and the progressive development of students’ mathematical sophistication. The book is organized in key domains of number instruction, including structuring numbers 1 to 20, knowledge of number words and numerals, conceptual place value, mental computation, written computation methods, fractions, and early algebraic reasoning.
  • Early Numeracy: Assessment for Teaching and Intervention (Math Recovery) by Robert J. Wright, James Martland and Ann K Stafford (Jan 26, 2006) - The assessment tools in this edition help teachers identify children's difficulties and misconceptions and become more skilled and confident in planning programs for intervention and monitoring children's progress.
  • Response to Intervention in Math: Practical Guidelines for Elementary Teachers by William N. Bender (Jun 30, 2010) - Addresses a growing demand for implementation of response to intervention (RTI) procedures in mathematics education. This resource offers guidance through each stage of the RTI process, extensive tools for teacher reflection and growth, and discussion of support strategies beyond the classroom. It also includes a variety of assessment materials, research-based instructional strategies, and numerous case-studies of RTI implementation.
  • RTI and Mathematics: Practical Tools for Teachers in K-8 Classrooms by Regina Gresham and Mary E. Little (Sep 17, 2012) - This interactive, practical resource gives educators sound knowledge and expertise for successfully implementing RTI in mathematics and addressing the challenges involved. Clarifies and describes the issues of RTI, the connections among teachers’ knowledge and skills and their use with RTI, and the role of the teacher within the classroom and school, and provides evidence-based content, scenarios, examples, resources, and activities; modeling description; and reflection upon the key learning outcomes of RTI.
  • RTI in Math: Pratical Guidelines for Elementary Teachers by William N. Bender and Darlene Crane (Aug 15, 2010)- RTI in Math: Practical Guidelines for Elementary Teachers addresses a growing demand for implementation of response to intervention (RTI) procedures in mathematics education. They analyze common student difficulties in both early and upper-elementary math, from basic number sense to complex problem-solving skills, and they apply a three-tier RTI model to the general education classroom. This resource offers guidance through each stage of the RTI process, extensive tools for teacher reflection and growth, and discussion of support strategies beyond the classroom. It also includes a variety of assessment materials, research-based instructional strategies, and numerous case-studies of RTI implementation.
  • Teaching Learners Who Struggle with Mathematics: Responding With Systematic Intervention and Remediation (3rd Edition) (Pearson Professional Development) by Helene J. Sherman, Lloyd I. Richardson and George J. Yard (Apr 23, 2012) - This book is designed for aspiring and practicing teachers who will work or are working with K-6 students in need of remediation and additional math instruction. Addressing the mathematical concepts students struggle with most, including place value, addition and subtraction of whole numbers, multiplication, division, fractions, and time and money, this book analyzes the roots and causes of frequent error patterns in student work and offers implementable solutions for solving them and teaching lifelong math skills. 
  • Understanding RTI in Mathematics: Proven Methods and Applications by Russell Gersten, Ph.D. and Rebecca Newman-Gonchar, Ph.D. (Aug 31, 2011) - This is the definitive volume on RTI in math: what we know about it, why it works, and how to use it to ensure high-quality math instruction and higher student achievement.  Filled with vignettes, accessible summaries of the most recent studies, and best-practice guidelines for making the most of RTI, this comprehensive research volume is ideal for use as a textbook or as a key resource to guide decision makers.
  • Using Formative Assessment to Differentiate Mathematics Instruction, Grades 4-10: Seven Practices to Maximize Learning by Leslie Laud (Mar 28, 2011) - Staff development expert Leslie Laud provides seven research-based practices that show teachers how to implement formative assessment, create tiered instruction, and manage a multitasking classroom.
