PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT for supporting English Learners, Literacy and Academic Language

The California Reading & Literature Project (CRLP) is a collaborative, statewide network of classroom teachers and university scholars that provides quality, standards-based professional development in language and literacy instruction to ensure that every student is academically prepared to finish high school ready for college and career. Scholars and teacher leaders from across the state work collaboratively to develop, implement, and evaluate professional development programs designed to help districts support and sustain continuous improvement in academic literacy and language development for all students. CRLP focuses on student achievement and grounds all professional development activities in student work and outcomes, in order to inform teacher practice and assess teacher leadership.

Jeff Zwiers-Gathering, Analyzing, and Acting on Evidence of Oral Language Development

This highly collaborative workshop will focus on improving the gathering and analyzing of oral language evidence in classroom settings. We will clarify several sections of Chapter 2 of the ELA-ELD Framework to identify ways to shift how we teach content through and for oral language, and how we deal with the many exciting yet ephemeral examples of oral language that occur in a lesson. Please bring examples (audio, transcriptions, observation notes) of oral language that you would like to analyze collaboratively in this session.
