  • Language development occurs within a dedicated ELD curriculum (designated ELD)
  • AND across all academic subjects (integrated ELD).

So what will help our teachers?
  • 2012 ELD Standards
  • Sustained collaboration and professional learning around key problems of practice
  • Deep understanding of disciplinary literacy (content AND language knowledge)
  • Formative assessments within teaching and learning
why establish eld standards
Why establish ELD standards?
  • English learners at all English language proficiency levels are capable of engaging in intellectually rich instruction in all content areas.
  • English learners bring primary language resources that should be valued in their own right and used as a resource for learning English.
  • English learners learn both language and content through meaningful interactions with others and by learning about how language works to make meaning.
eld shifts new eld standards
ELD Shifts: New ELD Standards
  • Adopted on November 7, 2012 by SBE
  • Correlated to CCSS & designed to help ELs build critical knowledge and skills

let s take a look at the ca eld standards
Let’s take a look at the CA ELD Standards………….

Amplify critical knowledge about English language skills in the CCSS for ELA/Literacy that English learners need to be successful in school

To be used by content area teachers

as well as ELD teachers to ensure support for our EL students.

proficiency level descriptors
Proficiency Level Descriptors

Include:

  • Overall Proficiency (entry & exit)
  • Extent of linguistic support needed
  • Describe knowledge, skills, and abilities across a continuum
  • Three levels: Emerging, Expanding, Bridging at early and exit stages
  • Guide targeted instruction in ELD and

differentiated instruction in content areas

  • Work with a partner at your table
  • Pick one grade level ELD standard
  • Read the emerging description
  • Read the expanding description of the same standard – highlight what you see has been added in comparison with the emerging description.
  • Now read the bridging description of the same standard – highlight what you see has been added in comparison with the expanding description.
  • Be prepared to share what you saw with the rest of the group.

Points

to

Consider

  • What tasks do I want my students to be able to complete independently?
      • Determine the central ideas from various texts and summarize accurately (7th Grade History Literacy 2.0)
      • Explain ideas based on close readings of grade-level texts (7th Grade ELD – Writing 6-A)
  • What do I need to consider getting them to that point?
        • The academic language they need to be successful
        • Their language needs according to their PLD
        • (emerging, expanding, bridging)
        • How to make our time together relevant, challenging,
        • and engaging
  • What tools do I have to put all of this together for my students?
        • Scaffolding
        • Differentiation
        • Integrated instruction

Ah-ha! If I integrate the academic content and ELD standards, my students will develop both the academic and English fluency. I am the best teacher ever!

integrated and designated eld working in tandem

Integrated and Designated ELD: Working in Tandem

Integrated ELD:

All teachers with English learners in their classrooms use the CA ELD Standards in tandem with the CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy and other content standards.

Designated ELD:

A protected time where teachers use the CA ELD Standards as the focal standards in ways that build into and from content instruction.

what should we see el students doing in eld and sheltered sdaie classrooms
What should we see EL students doing in ELD and Sheltered/SDAIE classrooms?
  • Engaging in productive oral discourse and written group work with peers that incorporates academic vocabulary tied to the lesson or unit of study.
  • Participating in effective oral discourse and written communication with teachers.
  • Explaining and demonstrating their knowledge using emerging complex language, academic vocabulary and other communicative strategies in different settings.
  • Extracting meaning from complex written texts.
we must ensure daily high quality eld instruction for our el students
We must ensure daily, high quality ELD instruction for our EL students

Administrators have to know what to look for in ELD

Daily language objectives that frame opportunities for discourse and collaborative conversations using academic language.

Using genuine formative assessments to guide instruction frequently.

Walk through the classrooms regularly to ensure it happens

Ensure that ELD teachers have opportunities for feedback on their instruction and time to collaborate with one another.
