A Prekindergarten Through 3rd Grade Professional Development Initiative

Language and Literacy Partners (LLP) support teachers and administrators in adopting and refining instructional practices that cultivate young children’s literacy skills. Our Balanced Literacy Framework is specifically designed to support PreK – 3rd grade teams through an in-depth study of literacy practices that supports:

  • Listening and speaking
  • Reading and writing
  • Home language and dialect and the academic language of school
  • Skill learning and high-level thinking
  • Whole group and small group instruction with individual conferring and conversation
  • School and home partnerships
