Signature Programs

All CRLP Programs are aligned to the California Common Core Standards and reflect the CA ELA/ELD framework. The Literacy Framework below is a fundamental component of all CRLP programs. It helps teachers adopt a diagnostic stance in which they informally assess the different factors that affect overall reading ability. Developed by Dr. John Shefelbine, this framework is the foundation for effectively differentiating language and literacy instruction in any content area, which will ultimately help students meet the demands of reading complex text.

Literacy Framework

Word Recogniton & Fluency

**Great program for interventionists and teachers in Grades K-2**

CRLP Results: Word Recognition and Fluency Supporting Implementation of the Common Core State Standards: Foundational Skills (K-5)

This CRLP institute focuses on the Common Core Foundational Skills students need to learn, when it needs to be covered within an overall scope and sequence, and how instruction might be approached. This institute also emphasizes why these skills must be learned, when the optimal time is to teach these skills and how to do so.

Institute Outcomes

  • Understand the CRLP Literacy Framework for Assessment and Instruction and its relationship to the Common Core Foundational Skills.
  • Understand the content of the four components of the CCSS Foundational Skills and their importance in learning to read and spell. 
  • Know how to administer and interpret assessments of letter name knowledge, phonological awareness, phonics, and high frequency irregular sight words.
  • Summarize and integrate assessments and use the results to (a) place students in one of four word recognition levels of learning to read and (b) determine an instructional sequence through the remaining word recognition levels using State adopted reading programs.
  • Enhance and differentiate word recognition/spelling strategy instruction by planning and preparing to teach tier 1 & 2 MTSS lessons and/or instructional routines using State adopted core programs.
  • Understand three kinds of beginning reading materials, how their leveling systems differ, and when they are appropriate to use.

Results: Academic Language and Literacy Instruction, K-6 (RALLI)   Supporting Implementation of the Common Core State Standards

 

RALLI is a professional development institute designed to provide teachers with the tools and skills necessary to analyze the academic language and literacy demands of complex literary and informational texts.  RALLI also 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 comprehension.  RALLI core routines include both content and language objectives, following a general sequence for before, during, and after reading.

CALL **Now offered as a 2 day program**

CALL - Content Area Language and Literacy

CALL is a professional development program designed to provide secondary teachers with the tools and skills necessary to analyze the academic language and literacy demands of course-specific texts and materials. CALL supports teachers in designing effective instruction to help their students read complex texts and to use evidence from the texts to demonstrate their comprehension.

A key requirement of meeting the  Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts is that all students must be able to comprehend texts of steadily increasing complexity as they progress through school. (Anchor Standard #10)

Students in college and the workforce are expected to read complex texts with substantially greater independence than are students in typical secondary classrooms. College students are held more accountable for what they read on their own than are most students in middle or high school.
