Project CLEAR

California Literacy Elevation by Accelerating Reading

California Literacy Elevation by Accelerating Reading (Project CLEAR) builds capacity within districts across California to implement and accelerate literacy development. Project CLEAR provides a grant-funded opportunity for educators – including dual language and bilingual educators serving Spanish-speaking students – to deepen expertise in reading intervention via a free graduate-level online coursework training program. Applications are currently being accepted for two professional learning opportunities! For more information, see Project CLEAR’s webpage.

Become a Teacher Leader with expertise in leading reading intervention. Through this two-year program, participants become Teacher Leaders who can train and coach teachers to implement comprehensive literacy strategies and interventions for K-12 students who have reading, writing, and language-based needs. The evidence-based teaching approaches expand availability and access to literacy acceleration and intervention for diverse students in the Teacher Leader’s district or school, including students who are English learners, students in dual language programs, and students with disabilities, dyslexia and/or phonological processing challenges. 

Become a Teacher with expertise in reading intervention. Through this year-long program, participants develop skills to implement comprehensive literacy strategies in their classrooms through Reading Recovery, Descubriendo la Lectura, and/or Literacy Lessons interventions for students who have reading, writing, and language-based needs.
