How do we support and challenge our students so that they continue to make progress through the middle-years of schooling?
It is this question that drove me and a team of educators, literacy experts, publishers and developers to create CSI Literacy in 2007.
We created a world-first – a digital interface with tools for teaching reading to students. By combining this innovative interface with explicit teaching that focuses on a gradual release of responsibility, we developed a resource that hits the “sweet spot” – a literacy learning approach that promises accelerated achievement for students in the crucial middle years of schooling.
CSI Literacy is based on research evidence that supports the view that most, if not all, students can be brought to competence if the pedagogy is rich enough, the teaching explicit enough and the texts and tasks engaging enough.
Over the last 8 years, CSI Literacy has created the “accelerator effect” in classrooms all over the world.
The core of this success story is engagement:
CSI Literacy is better than ever, as a solution to the long-standing issue of student underachievement in literacy.
