New MTSS Book by Susan Hall, Ed.D. 

10 Success Factors for Literacy Intervention:
Getting Results with MTSS in Elementary Schools
Available Now in our Web Store

In some schools MTSS/RTI is losing steam because other initiatives are consuming educators’ attention. Diverting focus away from MTSS is a mistake. A systemic approach to differentiating instruction to meet the needs of all students should be nonnegotiable. It’s not a fad, and it shouldn’t be pushed aside for something else that draws the staff’s attention.

One reason it may be easy to push aside MTSS is that although results have been outstanding in some schools, they have been negligible in too many others. The reason results have not been consistently strong is that in implementing MTSS, too many schools have left out critical components.

What are schools that are getting good results doing? When results are unimpressive, what’s missing?

Author and reading intervention expert Dr. Susan Hall answers these persistent questions in her publication, 10 Success Factors for Literacy Intervention:  Getting Results with MTSS in Elementary Schools.  Dr. Hall's experience in working with schools across the United States led to the development of a list of 10 success factors observable in schools that are getting significant gains in student literacy with MTSS.

The 10 Success Factors include:10 Success Factors for Literacy Intervention by Dr. Susan Hall

Phoneme Screener teacher with student

 

 

 

 

Have your students mastered Phoneme Substitution?

David Kilpatrick (2015)* says that phonemic manipulation skills continue to develop through fourth grade and that most curricula and assessments stop monitoring phonemic awareness in first grade.  

Advanced phonemic awareness skills are essential for learning unfamiliar words which is critical for reading success. 95 Percent Group provides a complimentary Phoneme Substitution Screener designed to determine if students in grades 1-4 have mastered phoneme substitution. 

Download our Phoneme Substitution Screener to find out if ALL of your students have mastered Phoneme Substitution.
