The University of Minnesota National Center on Secondary Education and Transition (NCSET), funded by the College of Education and Human Development, publishes Research-to-Practice Briefs on evidence-based practices that improve secondary education and transition services.  These free and downloadable briefs cover topics from community mapping to self-determination to teaching word identification skills.

One of the briefs is on Collaborative Strategic Reading.  This brief gives an overview of the research on CSR, a detailed outline of the steps for implementing CSR, examples of materials to use when implementing CSR, and perspectives from teachers who have implemented CSR in their classrooms.  If you are interested in implementing CSR in your classroom, it is a terrific place to start!
