“Chris Weber’s six steps of behavioral RTI are clear, concise, and easy to implement, and every educator will benefit from the explicit instruction and subtle integration of specific behavioral skills into their instructional framework. This is a sure formula for enriching the lives and relationships of both students and teachers.”
“Utilizing his years of experience implementing RTI and MTSS in schools across the country, Weber masterfully lays out a road map to help districts develop the whole child. This book will truly assist educators in creating students with the skills to navigate the obstacles and opportunities in store for them, both inside and outside the classroom.”
“If a student lacks a basic academic skill, any educator would commit to meet the student at his or her current entry point and structure the learning from there. Why, then, does a different approach emerge when the gap is in a basic behavioral skill? In Behavior: The Forgotten Curriculum, Chris Weber outlines six core steps all educators can follow to ensure behavioral and academic gaps are addressed in a similar fashion.”
“Behavior: The Forgotten Curriculum promises to help us, as educators, nurture life skills in our students—and that is exactly what it does! Chris Weber’s student-centered approach is both invigorating and inspiring. A breath of fresh air for RTI!”
