The Teaching Revolution

The Teaching Revolution
RTI, Technology, and Differentiation Transform Teaching for the 21st Century

August 2011 | 192 pages | Corwin

Imagine the school of the future!

The Teaching Revolution challenges educators to imagine schools the way they should be, with a "big picture" vision that includes student-driven curricula, interconnectivity, and targeted responsiveness to students' individual needs. The authors provide a futuristic and provocative discussion on combining three major instructional innovations—RTI, technology, and differentiation. Drawing on the growing 21st-century skills movement, the text engagingly weaves these three areas into a vision for school transformation that includes:

  • Utilizing mobile technologies, Web-based instruction, and social media
  • RTI that benefits all students and whole schools in their improvement efforts
  • Project-based learning focused on answering real-world questions

The symbiosis of RTI, technology, and differentiated instruction is so impactful that it will soon dramatically reform teaching. The Teaching Revolution will dare you to dream and guide you through the process of transforming education to become all that you can imagine.

“This book provides a great deal of relevant and timely information on several critically important topics – technology in the classroom, differentiated instruction, and RTI. The authors supported their recommendations with research and evidence, and they bring these ‘hot topics’ together in a manner I have not seen previously."

Judy Brunner, Professor

"This book clearly fulfills its stated purpose of identifying and linking the ‘3 sisters’ of educational reform: RTI, technology, and differentiated instruction. While there is much literature available on each of the three topics, I am not familiar with any book linking them together in this way. The book is easy to read as the interrelatedness of the topics is woven into the chapters. The case studies and resources included in the boxes in the chapters are strengths of the book."

"I think the web references were great. I actually went and looked at how I could use some of these things in my math classroom. This chapter is full of information that is enlightening and would inspire a teacher to think: 'How could I . . . what if I changed.'"

Amanda McKee, Mathematics Teacher
Johnsonville High School, SC

“I believe the book does make a distinct contribution to the field by showing the complimentary overlap of the three innovations. The relevancy of the material is explained clearly throughout the book, with suggestions as to how to get started in implementing or becoming familiar with the innovations discussed.”

Linda R. Vogel, Associate Professor
University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, CO

"The learner-centered approaches in this book can be implemented to intrigue students with customized assessment and instruction for daily planning and targeted interventions. This treasure trove of ideas will bring you the most recent research-based practices for cutting edge teaching and learning."
