Spring 2020 RALLI Institute

California Reading & Literature Project at Cal Lutheran


Results: Academic Language and Literacy Instruction (RALLI)

A CRLP professional learning institute, RALLI provides teachers and administrators with the tools and skills necessary to analyze the academic and literacy demands of complex literary and informational text. RALLI supports the implementation of the Common Core State Standards for reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language in grades K-5.

RALLI helps teachers and administrators understand how to incorporate the UDL (Universal Design for Learning) guidelines in their classroom. RALLI promotes equity for all learners with integrated and designated ELD structures and practices.

Regardless of your students' language, ability, or learning differences, RALLI creates a bridge for all learners to access high level text and rigorous thinking strategies.
