The Grade Level Proficiency Project (GLPP) is a comprehensive professional development classroom-based coaching program for teachers in grades 1-3 with students who have below grade level proficiency in reading and math. GLPP combines grade-appropriate evidence-informed online reading and math programs, implementation of 21st century Common Core State Standards, and in-class modeling and training for both teachers and students. Experienced teachers serve as coaches to classroom teachers in grades 1-3 to use technology to help guide teacher instruction and engage all students so that they achieve grade level proficiency in math and language arts upon completion of the third grade.
GLPP is a blended learning reading and math program that includes the following four components:
• Personalized learning for both students and teachers.
•Technology to engage students and provide a rigorous and challenging curriculum.
• On-site coaching by experienced peer teachers who train and support the teachers.
• Self-leveling language arts and math software with diagnostic tools for rapid feedback
• Language arts and math instruction that supports and complements the Common Core curriculum.
