The Memphis Striving Readers Project (MSRP) is a $16 million, US Department of Education funded program (2006-2011) awarded to Memphis City Schools with the U of M-led  Memphis Content Literacy Academy (MCLA) as a key component. The MCLA is a joint University of Memphis/Memphis City Schools venture aimed at helping subject area teachers at selected middle schools in MCS to develop expertise in implementing scientifically-based literacy practices as part of instruction in mathematics, science, social studies, and language arts education, so that children living at the poverty level will realize their full potential in American education. Memphis is one of only eight Striving Readers sites in the United States. Results of the project will be available to help teachers of middle school students all across America achieve their potential.
