Raising the Standards Through Chapter Books, 2nd Edition


Sarah Collinge introduces teachers to an innovative approach to reading chapter books that motivates students by bridging the gap between text and reader. The essential components of the approach are captured in its acronym, CIA—collect, interpret, and apply. By breaking down the reading process into meaningful stages, Sarah brilliantly simplifies the overwhelming task of reading longer, more complex text. For teachers new to the Read Side by Side Program, this book and video book study will be your professional development solution!
