Research and Efficacy

Data Reports

The Teachers College Reading and Writing Project works with thousands of schools and districts around the nation and around the world. Periodically the Project publishes reports documenting the performance of these schools. The following Data Reports provide information on student performance in schools that work with the TCRWP.

These state-specific reports look at testing data in TCRWP schools in a variety of ways, including tracing growth over time, investigating the performance of English Language Learners and economically disadvantaged students, and comparing TCRWP schools with other schools overall. Note: The TCRWP is currently analyzing data for a number of specific locations. Check back for additional reports coming soon.

Case Studies

In these documents, the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project focuses a spotlight on a selection of New York City and Wisconsin schools that have benefited from their relationship with the Project. See their journeys—the early challenges and careful tending required to ensure all students are growing as readers and writers, regardless of background or circumstance. As one principal put it, "You have to believe in the work. If you can’t put your heart completely into it, don’t bother."
