The Center for the Collaborative Classroom is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to providing continuous professional learning for teachers and curricula that support the academic, ethical, and social development of children. The organization brings to bear 51 years of collective experience from two leading educational nonprofit organizations: Center for the Collaborative Classroom (CCC) and Cornerstone Literacy, Inc. (CLI).
DSC was founded by Eric Schaps in 1980 to conduct research and develop school-based and after-school programs that help children achieve academically and develop socially. DSC has impacted more than 120,000 classrooms and 20,000 after-school sites with its curriculum and professional development.
CLI has worked to improve literacy and critical-thinking skills for students in high-poverty communities for more than 16 years. Initially founded as a national literacy initiative of the New York Institute for Special Education, CLI worked with more than 100 schools in 14 districts to provide embedded professional development aimed at increasing the number of highly effective teachers, and helping schools create a culture where teachers can be successful and students have the opportunity to learn, develop, and achieve at high levels.
