You’ve told us that you’ve got readers who are falling behind their peers, readers who can decode well but have little comprehension, readers who are new to the English language, and readers who simply have no interest in books. (And many more types of readers!)
Meeting the diverse needs of readers in a classroom isn’t easy. You need engaging resources that boost reading comprehension and develop vocabulary, writing, oral language and fluency. Resources that work.
We can help.
At CSI Literacy, we’ve made fun, easy-to-use and effective resources that will help you to boost your students' literacy achievement. Our resources–
CSI Literacy kits are the key to unlocking the potential of your students: short, engaging texts that allow you to explicitly teach reading strategies that your students will be able to use for the rest of their lives.
How does it work? First, you’ll teach a specific reading strategy in a fun, interactive shared reading lesson. Your students will practice this reading strategy in a co-operative learning activity, before reflecting on their learning in an independent writing activity.
Regardless where their learning is at, with each lesson you’ll make difficult concepts accessible to every student in your class. You'll have them all working together at their year level to get real reading results – a true learning community.
What's inside the box?
Finding interesting texts to grow your students’ reading abilities shouldn’t be hard.
We’ve made it easy with CSI Chapters, a collection of 25 short, original high-interest chapter books. Each book varies in length from 24 to 32 pages, making them perfect for guided reading.
CSI Chapters engage students and offer supports and scaffolds to give students the confidence and skills needed to tackle any text.
How will CSI Chapters help you?
CSI Chapters are high interest books that pick up where the CSI Literacy kits leave off: allowing you to continue to teach strategic reading skills while students learn to read longer texts.
Even your most reluctant readers will be totally engrossed in CSI Private Eye, an interactive online adventure series full of reading and writing activities and opportunities.
Your students will love solving real-life mysteries from around the world – boosting literacy has never been so fun and easy.
