Literacy and Reading Intervention Strategies

Students don’t always learn the way we are teaching, so we need to teach the way they learn. We believe that all students can learn to read at proficient and advanced levels.


CSAS will work with your instructional leaders and teachers to refine, rather than replace the programs and practices you already have in place within your school or district.

CSAS Literacy and Reading Intervention Strategies Will Help Teachers To:

  • Use curriculum to create units of study, design instruction, and develop assessments to meet the increased learning expectations of grade level content standards based instruction.

  • Incorporate reading and writing standards for literacy into history/social studies, science, and technical subjects in grades 6–12.

  • Create a balanced approach to literacy instruction that is direct and explicit for at risk students and guided practice through small group and independent opportunities for enrichment.

  • Create an inclusive classroom environment that addresses the reading and writing needs of all students through a multi-tiered system of support approach to instruction and intervention.

  • Increase students’ knowledge through non-fiction, and close reading instructional strategies.

  • Use research validated vocabulary and comprehension instructional strategies to ensure students can read and understand increasingly complex texts.

Dr. Chandra Williams is a dynamic speaker and phenomenal leader, specializing in turnaround structures and processes. As the state leader for school and district turnaround and improvement, I engaged Chandra as a leading strategic thought partner to support the planning of Mississippi’s leadership conference that was specifically designed for building and central office leaders. More than 300 leaders attended.

Chandra served as the opening speaker and as a conference presenter. Her sessions proved to be one of the highlights of the conference as each one of her sessions filled to capacity. Her expertise proved so valuable that the office continued the partnership. Her understanding of the state agency’s responsibility as well as the school leader’s role in turnaround is unparalleled. I still call upon her expertise today.

First and foremost, Dr. Williams is a teacher at heart, and that comes across clearly to her audiences, but she also possesses the knowledge of current research and translates that into practical application for school leaders and teachers of any subject. She is truly the most intelligent and dynamic person we have ever contracted with and she has inspired even our most reluctant teachers to try new approaches.
