Collaborative Strategic Reading-Colorado (CSR-CO)

Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR) is a multi-component reading strategies approach that supports reading comprehension and content learning. Students apply comprehension strategies while reading expository text in small, collaborative, student-led groups. We are currently working with teachers and school leaders in several districts including Boulder Valley School District, Adams 14, and the NYC Department of Education to implement CSR in upper elementary and secondary classrooms that include students from diverse language and learning backgrounds.

This is a public program. For more information, please visit the program website.
