Center on English Learning and Achievement (CELA)

The Center on English Learning & Achievement (CELA)'s current studies include a national study of writing instruction. The Center’s research, development, and service activities, conducted locally as well as in schools across the United States, have found elements of curriculum, instruction, and assessment that are essential to developing student literacy and developed and tested effective instructional approaches. CELA’s Partnership for Literacy, a professional and instructional development program designed to increase teacher knowledge and student learning, is available to schools and districts on a collaborative grant or fee-for-service basis. CELA also provides research findings and school reform suggestions through print and online resources ( to teachers, administrators, and parents so that they can put the Center’s findings to work in their classrooms, schools, and communities.
