What Is RALLI?
RALLI is designed to provide teachers with the tools and skills necessary to analyze the academic language and literacy demands of complex literary and informational texts and materials. RALLI supports teachers in designing effective instruction to help their students make meaning from complex grade-level text, whether read aloud to them or read by them with instructional support, and to use evidence from the text to demonstrate their comprehension. Lesson planning includes both content and language objectives and follows a general sequence for before, during, and after reading.
RALLI provides elementary school teachers with proven instructional routines for before, during, and after reading of complex text.
RALLI offers strategies for scaffolding reading and academic language for students, especially English learners.
RALLI routines serve to promote development of independent reading when students apply the routines as they read independently and are more aware of comprehension monitoring, text structures, academic vocabulary, and organizing texts for different purposes.
