Alert Issue 19, Spring 2012

Cognitive strategy instruction (CSI), an explicit instructional method that has been applied to multiple academic tasks, provides a means for educators to promote independent competence by students with learning disabilities across elementary, secondary, and post-secondary settings. CSI has a very strong evidence base; employs systematic, explicit instructional procedures that have been validated extensively; and can be applied flexibly (e.g., across group sizes). This Alert provides examples and additional resources about the use of CSI for students with LD.
