CRLP @ California Lutheran University

The mission of the California Reading and Literature Project (CRLP) at California Lutheran University is to provide high-quality, standards-based teacher professional development in reading academic language instruction, with particular focus on English learners. Through collaborative partnerships with schools and districts, CRLP supports and sustains continuous academic growth for all students, K-12.

CRLP @ UC San Diego

CRLP UC San Diego collaborates with partnership districts to support and sustain continuous school improvement specific to reading and language instruction, including the implementation of California State Board adopted instructional materials, state standards/frameworks, and the Common Core State Standards. Our offerings position the needs of under-served populations at the forefront of participants’ learning, such as the needs of English Learners (ELs), socioeconomically disadvantaged students, and newcomers to the CA/US educational system.
