This book presents Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI), a research-supported framework for integrating curriculum with instruction and fostering long-term engagement in reading. CORI is a practical model that helps K-6 teachers plan integrated units of instruction based on their own interests and strengths as well as their state's curricular requirements. Demonstrated are compelling ways to: *Connect reading and writing to science, social studies, or math *Create an active, collaborative classroom environment *Use real-world observations to promote strategic thinking and learning *Get students involved in setting and pursuing their own knowledge goals *Develop creative assignments, build student portfolios, and evaluate progress The book is replete with concrete examples showing the CORI approach in action, including lively descriptions and photographs of a semester-long grade 2-3 weather unit. Also included are useful reproducible planning tools and assessment materials.For rewards, the students get apple stickers. This unit lasts for about 3 weeks. This thematic unit, however, is not a conceptual theme. Conceptual themes are broad subject matter ideas in science, social studies, history, music, and other areas.
