Motivating Reading Comprehension: Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction

Gunthrie, J. T., Wigfield, A., & Perencevich, K. C. (Eds.). (2004). Motivating reading comprehension: Concept-oriented reading instruction. Mahwah, NJ: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.

This book explains the Concept Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI) method in great detail.  This method of teaching reading attempts to link hands-on science activities, reading comprehension, and engagement but can be used in other disciplines as well.  The CORI model emphasizes strategic reading, strategy instruction, and creating a motivating context for these to develop; such as hands-on activities, student choice, interesting text, and collaboration.
