Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI). What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction" is a reading comprehension instructional program for grades 3-9 that integrates reading and science through activities and the use of science books during reading instruction. The program supplements a school's standard science and reading curricula and offers instruction in reading strategies, scientific concepts, and inquiry skills. "Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction" intends to improve reading comprehension and increase reading engagement. The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) identified 48 studies of "Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction" for adolescent learners that were published or released between 1989 and 2009. However, no studies of "Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction" that fall within the scope of the Adolescent Literacy review protocol meet What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence standards. The lack of studies meeting WWC evidence standards means that, at this time, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of "Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction" on adolescent learners.
