Results: Academic Language and Literacy Instruction, K-6 (RALLI)

A CRLP professional learning institute, RALLI provides teachers and administrators with help to promote a UDL (Universal Design for Learning) classroom. RALLI creates equality for all learners with integrated and designated ELD structures and practices. RALLI has continued to prove CCSS for reading, writing, speaking and listening through grades K-5. RALLI provides learning strategies for all students. Learning is not just for some students, it is for all! 

RALLI helps you make stronger and equitable connections for your students using a UDL promoting teaching stragtegy. 

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. 

RALLI supports the implementation of the Common Core State Standards for reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language in grades K-5.

RALLI also supports teachers in designing effective instruction to help their students make meaning from complex grade-level text, whether read aloud to them or read by them with instructional support, and to use evidence from the text to demonstrate comprehension. 

RALLI core routines include both content and language objectives, following a general sequence for before, during, and after reading.

How Does RALLI Meet the Needs of English Learners?

CRLP has a long history of providing professional learning to help teachers meet the needs of English learners.  Our highly qualified teachers leaders understand the everyday challenges of providing the kinds of instructional support EL students need in order to attain the level of academic English required for successful subject matter learning in school. 

RALLI core routines focus on how to make dense, complex text accessible to all students, including an emphasis on linguistic support-on unpacking the words and the structures of sentences and text.
