Characteristics
Description:

We work with teachers to improve instruction so that children can become powerful readers, writers and thinkers.

We Coach Teachers

We provide one-on-one and small group professional development in the classroom – providing demonstrations and feedback that help teachers incorporate effective balanced literacy practices into their daily work with students.

We Supply Classrooms

We provide the classrooms we work in with learning materials and collections of high-quality children’s literature. We also extend our professional development services online through LEARN (Literacy Education and Resource Network).

We Host Workshops

We provide workshops and seminars that build teachers’ knowledge of literacy content and pedagogy. This provides the foundational knowledge for future one-on-one professional development meetings.

Theory of Action

CLI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides educators with training and coaching in the most effective practices for early literacy instruction for prekindergarten through third grade. Our workshops and institutes build teachers’ understanding of literacy and the art and science of teaching children how to read and write. By focusing on professional skills that improve over time and are not lost when administrations, buildings, or curricula change, CLI helps create a sustainable, school-wide culture of literacy that introduces students to the joys of reading, writing, and life-long learning.

Mission & Vision

We envision a nation where every child has the power of literacy and the opportunity for a lifetime of success.

Our goal is to close the gap in literacy achievement between disadvantaged children and their more affluent peers. We know that early reading = lifelong success. We also know that there is no stronger lever for improving student outcomes than giving teachers high-impact instructional strategies.

During the 2016-2017 school year, we served over 3,500 prekindergarten through thi

Research for Action

Philadelphia, PA
Educational Support Services view similar»

Characteristics
Description:

Mission

Research for Action (RFA) seeks to use research as the basis for the improvement of educational opportunities and outcomes for traditionally underserved students. Our work is designed to strengthen public schools and postsecondary institutions; provide research-based recommendations to policymakers, practitioners and the public at the local, state and national levels; and enrich the civic and community dialogue about public education.

History

RFA is a Philadelphia-based, nonprofit education research organization. It was founded in 1992 by Drs. Eva Gold and Jolley Bruce Christman with a commitment to conducting education research that explored the complexities of education reform initiatives in Philadelphia, and provided education stakeholders with common-sense research to inform their initiatives. During that time, RFA produced seminal research that shaped urban education initiatives locally and nationally. See our publications page for more.

RFA has continued to build on that strong tradition. In 2009, RFA came under the direction of its first executive director, Dr. Kathleen Shaw. During her tenure, RFA has achieved four-fold growth; hired and cultivated high-level quantitative research capacity to complement RFA’s existing qualitative expertise; competed successfully for large, multi-year projects with major national organizations and foundations; developed the Pennsylvania Clearinghouse for Education Research (PACER), an initiative designed to respond to emerging education debates and discussions with nonpartisan, rigorous research and analysis; and, in partnership with the School District of Philadelphia, the city’s charter sector, and its three major research universities, launched the Philadelphia Education Research Consortium (PERC).
