Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI)
Beginning Reading

As of July 2007 no studies of Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI) were found that fell within the scope of the Beginning Reading review protocol and met WWC design standards. Therefore, the WWC is unable to draw any research based conclusions about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI) to improve outcomes in this area.
Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction is a reading comprehension instructional program for grades 3–9 that integrates reading and science through activities and the use of science books during reading instruction. The program supplements a school’s standard science and reading curricula and offers instruction in reading strategies, scientific concepts, and inquiry skills. Concept- Oriented Reading Instruction intends to improve reading comprehension and increase reading engagement.
