  • RESULTS - Word Recognition & Fluency

    RESULTS - Word Recognition & Fluency Supporting Implementation of the Common Core State Standards: Foundational Skills (K-5)

    The CCSS Foundational Skills are critical prerequisites for reading comprehension. Skills such as the ability to decode words accurately, quickly, and easily have a direct impact on students' reading comprehension. CRLP Results: Word Recognition and Fluency provides professional development on the Foundational Skills students need to learn, when they need 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. CRLP Results: Word Recognition and Fluency is designed specifically to make sure all students are successful readers.

    RESULTS offers an in-depth understanding of the content of the four major components of reading foundational skills: print concepts, phonological awareness, word recognition and fluency and how they develop sequentially.

    RESULTS includes assessments for determining students' proficiency in these standards, which enables teachers to group according to instructional needs.

    RESULTS provides instructional routines that will help students master these standards using beginning reading materials that meet state guidelines.

Regional Programs

Leadership Invitational

The leadership institute is an annual event designed for new or experienced teachers in grades K-12 who are interested in deepening their pedagogical knowledge about English Language Arts and English language development instruction. We use the CA Common Core standards and the CA ELA/ELD framework as well as other resources to inform and expand our understanding of these content areas. We also extend our learning by studying disciplinary literacy and biliteracy. This institute is designed to create a supportive community of learners and leaders. This is an introductory event offered to teachers that are new to CRLP. There is no cost to participants to attend this institute but there is an application and a commitment to the 5 days of study.

Outcomes from 2016-17:

  • Study academic language and achievement for ALL learners;
  • Deepen our understanding of the CA Common Core and English Language Development Standards using the ELA/ELD framework and other resources for guidance;
  • Read literature and informational text to apply literacy strategies;
  • Integrate visual and performing arts into the curriculum
  • Participate in a collaborative team of learners

The institute will be held on 5 Saturdays throughout the 2016-17 school year.

Regional Leadership

After having attended a leadership invitational, we have a regional leadership group that meets for continued study to increase our educational and instructional knowledge.
