Stepping in to assist underachievers early can lead to student success. Educators will identify prototypical causes of underachievement, who their underachievers are, and what research-based interventions will help to reverse patterns of underachievement. Through RTI and differentiated instruction, educators will become flexible planners who supply their students with choices and frequently monitor their students progress. Compacting, scaffolding, and tiering strategies will help educators accommodate a range of learning needs.
