Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction: Engaging Classrooms, Lifelong Learners. Solving Problems in the Teaching of Literacy.
Swan, Emily Anderson
This book presents Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI), a research-supported framework for integrating curriculum with instruction and fostering long-term engagement in reading. According to the book, 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. The book demonstrates effective 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 skills; and develop creative assignments, build student portfolios, and evaluate progress. The book contains concrete examples showing the CORI approach in action, including descriptions and photographs of a semester-long Grade 2-3 weather unit. Also appended are reproducible planning tools and assessment materials. (Contains 108 references.) (NKA)
