This book presents Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI), a research-supported framework for integrating curriculum with instruction and fostering long-term engagement in reading. CORI is a practical model that helps K-6 teachers plan integrated units of instruction based on their own interests and strengths as well as their state's curricular requirements. Demonstrated are compelling ways to:
  • Connect reading and writing to science, social studies, or math
  • Create an active, collaborative classroom environment
  • Use real-world observations to promote strategic thinking and learning
  • Get students involved in setting and pursuing their own knowledge goals
  • Develop creative assignments, build student portfolios, and evaluate progress
The book is replete with concrete examples showing the CORI approach in action, including lively descriptions and photographs of a semester-long grade 2-3 weather unit. Also included are useful reproducible planning tools and assessment materials.
