I love that you said that we need to always set high expectations for our students. I believe this too. I think it is some important that we let our students know that we expect a lot from them and that we believe they can reach these expectations. When done in a positive and encouraging way, students will work hard to reach our expectations. To attempt to answer your question, I think that materials for intervention could be provided by either the school or teacher. In a perfect world, the teacher wouldn't have to spend any of his or her own money on supplies. Depending on where you are, your materials may or may not be provided. I love the quote you pulled out of the text though. We really should integrate text into our routines whenever possible. At ASU, they do a great job of teaching us how to integrate our lessons. They show us how to teach language arts and science together. I think that we can incorporate literacy into almost every subject if you work hard to make it meaningful.

        You bring up a very good point. The main thing I have learned about AT is exactly what you said, AT does not have to be complicated to be effective. I have found that the cheapest and simplest AT... more
