Job Summary/Basic Function:

The Teachers College Reading and Writing Project provide literacy professional development to schools in a score of nations, as well as in cities and towns across America, and develop ideas that are foundational to literacy instruction across the globe. The mission of the TCRWP is to enable young people to become avid readers, writers, and inquirers. We accomplish this goal through research, curriculum development, and through working shoulder-to-shoulder with students, teachers, principals and superintendents. Our research has led us to develop state-of-the-art knowledge about the teaching of reading and writing in grades K-8, and about methods of differentiating instruction, using formative assessments and supporting content-area literacy. The Project's methods of coaching teachers and supporting whole school reform have been widely influential. Because we function as both a think-tank and a community of practice, thousands of teachers regard the Reading and Writing Project as a continual source of professional renewal and education.
