Title:  WWC Review of the Report "The Impact of Collaborative Strategic Reading on the Reading Comprehension of Grade 5 Students in Linguistically Diverse Schools"
Description: The 2011 study, The Impact of Collaborative Strategic Reading on the Reading Comprehension of Grade 5 Students in Linguistically Diverse Schools, examined the impact of Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR), a set of instructional strategies used to build reading proficiency, on the reading comprehension of fifth-grade students. The analysis included 1,355 students from 74 social studies classrooms within 26 linguistically diverse schools in five districts in Oklahoma and Texas. Researchers randomly assigned social studies classrooms to either an intervention condition, where teachers used CSR instructional strategies for one school year, or a comparison condition, which provided business-as-usual instruction. The study is a well-implemented randomized controlled trial with low attrition at the classroom and student levels, and the research meets WWC evidence standards without reservations.
