Applications are open for the 2018-19 Kentucky Reading Project (KRP), a yearlong, graduate-level course focused on research-based literacy instruction and sponsored by the Collaborative Center for Literacy Development (CCLD) that has trained more than 3,800 teachers throughout the state since it began in 1999.

The free program is designed for teachers in grades K-5, and selected teachers will receive a stipend, professional resources and graduate credit (if desired) upon completion of the course in May 2019. University literacy faculty at each of the eight state universities provide instruction at various sites throughout the state. The two-week summer institutes focus on topics such as:

  • Early literacy
  • Formative and summative assessments
  • Strategies for differentiating instruction
  • Equity in literacy instruction

The summer institutes also include a day of training on family engagement by the National Center for Families Learning.

The application deadline is March 15. Visit the CCLD website for an application, or email KRP Director Cary Pappas for more information.
