The Evidence Base for Collaborative Literacy

Collaborative Literacy is an innovative set of modular programs designed by Collaborative Classroom to foster students’ ongoing development as readers, writers, and caring members of the classroom community. 

Together, the programs in Collaborative Literacy address the core skills that are traditionally taught in the language arts block while transforming the classroom into a student-centered learning environment. 

In Collaborative Literacy, reading instruction occurs in the Being a Reader module in grades K–2, and in the Making Meaning with Book Clubs modules in grades 3–5. Writing instruction in Collaborative Literacy happens in the Being a Writer module in grades K–5.
