CSI Literacy kits

Whole-class explicit teaching of reading strategies with gradual release of responsibility.

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 cooperative 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?

  • 45+ digital, interactive shared reading texts (+ a hardcopy book)
  • Lesson Plan book with lesson outlines, detailed support around teaching reading comprehension strategies, scheduling options, and assessment rubrics for teachers and students
  • Co-operative Learning Activities books
  • Audio support for Co-Operative Learning Activities
  • Reflection Journal (sample) – 40 graphic organizers, individually designed for each text to strengthen and consolidate students' learning
