California Reading & Literature Project
The mission of the California Reading & Literature Project (CRLP) is to provide high quality, standards-based teacher professional development in reading and academic language instruction. Through collaborative partnerships with schools and districts, CRLP supports and sustains continuous academic growth for all students, Pre-K through 12th grade.
CRLP accomplishes this by:
Developing teachers' content knowledge and expanding their teaching strategies (guided by state-adopted frameworks, content standards, and instructional materials) through summer and academic-year institutes and professional development programs.
Supporting teachers in the effective use of newly adopted, standards-based instructional materials.
Focusing on academic English language development to prepare all students to meet or exceed academic content standards in the subject areas.
Creating a statewide pool of expert teacher leaders and university scholars to conduct project programs and to translate California's educational policies and priorities into sound classroom practices to improve student achievement in Pre-K through 12th grade classrooms.
Linking universities, schools, and districts together in collaborative partnerships to improve teaching and learning with professional development designed to meet district needs.
