California Reading & Literature Project

CRLP Mission

The mission of the California Reading & Literature Project (CRLP) is to provide professional learning experiences centering educators as learners, leaders, and partners. We foster professional growth through reflective and critically-informed pedagogies and we promote authentic and comprehensive literacy instruction that is responsive to students' assets and identities.    

CRLP accomplishes this by: 

  • Linking universities, schools, and districts together in collaborative partnerships to improve teaching and learning with professional development designed to meet district needs.

  • Supporting teachers in the effective use of newly adopted, standards-based instructional materials.

  • Creating a statewide pool of expert teacher leaders and university scholars to conduct action research projects in order to translate California's educational policies and priorities into sound classroom practices to improve student achievement in Pre-K through 12th grade classrooms. 

  • Developing teachers' content knowledge and expanding their teaching strategies (guided by state-adopted frameworks, content standards, and the science of reading) through summer and academic-year institutes and professional development programs.

  • Focusing on English language development to prepare all students to meet or exceed academic content standards in the subject areas.
