Explore Collaborative Strategic Reading Comprehension Strategies with Dr. Sharon Vaughn, Grades 4-12

Open to: All teachers

Opportunity at a Glance: Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR) consists of four reading strategies that students apply before, during, and after reading a passage in a peer-mediated learning environment. Research has shown that these strategies—the Preview strategy, the Click and Clunk strategy, the Get the Gist strategy, and the Wrap Up strategy—are effective methods for improving reading comprehension. By the end of the professional development session, participants will be ready to prepare and implement Collaborative Strategic Reading lessons on their own. This opportunity is eligible for CTLE credits.
