Description

Drawing on dramatic success stories from traditional,
virtual, private and public schools, It’s
About Time: Planning Interventions and Extensions in Secondary School

offers practical advice to school administrators for finding time in the weekly
schedule for intervention and enrichment. Editors Mike Mattos and Austin Buffum
present an international team of educators who show how creative scheduling
provided their students greater access to core instruction, tier intervention
and individualised support.

  • create flexible time through
    the use of team teaching

  • 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.
