CRLP - What participants have to say:

“From my experience with the California Reading and Literature Project, it was always my dream to work in a school that embraced the principles of in-depth data analysis, teacher leadership, and collaboration.”

                       - Principal, Jennifer Wildman in the book Data Teams Success Stories, Vl. 1 by Kristin Anderson

"When my students first saw the SBAC assessment they said, "This is just like a RALLI task". They were better able to read through the long passages and their written responses were much longer than on past written exams because I have been providing RALLI lessons the past 6 months."

                        - 6th grade teacher, Salinas

“(I appreciated) the expertise of the presenters and how they demonstrated ways to incorporate these ideas/methodologies in a meaningful way.  They recognized and supported the concerns and issues which we face and helped us to think of constructive ways to overcome these obstacles.”

                       - Elementary teacher, Salinas

“Using these strategies has helped me do a better job in “Backward planning,” thus preparing my students better for the Benchmark Test. My students have improved 21% from last year. They are writing better and their grades are higher.”
