Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR) teaches students with varied ability levels four specific comprehension strategies while working cooperatively. Student strategies includes previewing the text; giving ongoing feedback by deciding “click” (I get it) or “clunk” (I don’t get it) at the end of each paragraph; getting the “gist” of the most important parts of the text; and “wrapping up” key ideas. It provides step-by-step instructions, lesson plans, sample teacher-to-student dialogues, whole class activities and reproducibles.
