Description

In It’s About Time:
Planning Interventions and Extensions in Elementary School
, contributors
from the frontlines of education offer F–8 school administrators practical
advice for adjusting their school schedules to create intervention and
enrichment time. Editors Austin Buffum and Mike Mattos present a team of
writers who outline how their schools provide students with better access to
strong core instruction and individualised support. The examples span from
traditional to virtual schools, private to public schools and early education
to the middle years.


Readers will learn how to



  • work with multiple schedules to
    target differing student needs

  • offer emotional as well as
    structural support for intervention efforts

  • use technology to create online
    intervention and support

  • engage parents and community
    stakeholders in intervention efforts

  • employ behaviour intervention
    to build trust and buy-in from at-risk students.
