Strategies for Improving Comprehension
Collaborative Strategic Reading is a procedure for teaching comprehension skills to students with varied ability levels in one classroom. Proven reading comprehension strategies are combined with cooperative learning groups or paired learning to help children improve their comprehension of narrative and expository text. Students will build their vocabulary, raise their DIBELS scores, link reading with writing, and more.
Collaborative Strategic Reading provides step-by-step instructions, lesson plans, sample teacher-to-student dialogues, whole class activities, and all the necessary reproducibles.
