Partnership for Literacy
Through its Partnership for Literacy the Center on English Learning & Achievement (CELA) offers a variety of instructional and professional development services to schools. This program of service is research based and tested in dozens of schools in the Greater Capital Region and beyond. Students of teachers who participated in the Partnership made important literacy gains; this was especially true for students who generally underperform. Partnership coaches now work with teachers across the grades and subjects to improve student engagement and higher-order thinking, as well as their reading, writing, listening, and speaking performance.
