The Comprehensive Intervention Model (CIM) organizes essential educational theory and effective instructional practices under a complete, layered intervention model. CIM includes both a professional book and resource manual that correlates the intent behind the Response to Intervention (RTI) movement. This well-researched and practical resource begins by laying the theoretical foundation for its methodology before describing its multi-tiered system of instruction across a range of components. The book concludes with a collection of examples that show the model in action.
The CIM professional book includes:
- High-quality, differentiated classroom instruction
- A portfolio of evidence-based interventions
- A seamless assessment system at an individual and system level
- School-embedded professional learning for increasing teacher efficacy and building capacity in schools
The resource manual provides administrators, coaches, and teachers with the tools needed to implement the CIM with fidelity including planners, guide sheets, observation forms, data collection forms, phonics and word learning guides, and more. Use these two books together to support a Response to Intervention (RTI) method for closing the gap between low-progress readers and their grade-level peers.
Shaping Literate Minds

How can teachers create a literacy curriculum that builds processing links between reading, writing, and spelling knowledge? In Shaping Literate Minds: Developing Self Regulated Learners, Linda J. Dorn and Carla Soffos illustrate how processing theory can be applied to the everyday practices of classroom teaching.
If instruction emphasizes the interrelationships of these three language areas, students learn how to transfer knowledge, skills, and strategies across literacy events. This is complex theory, but the authors provide clear and practical examples to support teachers as they incorporate these ideas into their classroom practices.
Grounded in authentic experiences from primary classrooms, this book provides:
- Explanations of processing behaviors among reading, writing, and spelling knowledge
- Observational tools that support teachers in noticing changes over time in specific literacy behaviors
- Guidance on creating conditions for developing self-regulated learners
- Authentic reading and writing samples and teacher/student interactions
- Figures and pictures that clearly describe how teachers can use assessment to inform and guide instruction, with links to national standards
- Details for establishing a school-based literacy model that includes team meetings, assessment walls, high standards, and a curriculum for literacy
- Appendixes with reproducible assessment checklists, report cards, task cards for literacy corners, and guided reading observation forms for team meetings
