Using Collaborative Strategic Reading to Improve Reading Comprehension


Research-Based Practices in Special Education, the book in which this chapter appears, is a collection of techniques shown to work for students with disabilities. The book aims to help practitioners, teacher educators, and policymakers combat the gap between research and practice. The chapters offer a consistent format, including definition of strategy, theoretical underpinnings, description, fidelity checklist, and research-based summaries. Sections cover a range of special education issues, including academic outcomes, behavior outcomes, assessment techniques, and special populations.
