The Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR) program works with elementary and middle school students in diverse classrooms to improve reading comprehension and content learning in science, social studies and language arts.

CSR resources and professional development have supported teachers and school leaders in districts across Colorado including Boulder Valley School District, Adams 14 and Denver Public Schools.

We are currently working with the New York City Department of Education, department of English as a New Language, to implement our program’s strategies in upper elementary and secondary classrooms that include students from diverse language and learning backgrounds.
