questions to be answered
Questions to be Answered
  • What is WIDA? How do all those parts work?
    • BONUS!!! Why“What Is WIDA?”
  • How can teachers use WIDA as a tool for monitoring ELD progress?

(And why would you want to?)

  • How can studentsuse WIDA as a tool for monitoring their own ELD progress?

(And why would you want themto?)

why what is wida
Why“What Is WIDA?”

Clarify

Still EARLY

Different Levels

Multiple Encounters

Advocate for all teachers

to use WIDA …

ante up
“Ante Up”
  • We earn the right to stand up here…
  • proving our basic understanding,
  • risking that you’ll disagree with our interpretation, &
  • giving you the basis to evaluate what comes next.
wida the bigger nutshell
WIDA: The Bigger Nutshell
  • Language is the toolfor learning!
  • LEP’s are in mainstream classrooms. (95% of the time in MPS.)
  • LEP’s use their Limited English to learn in 5 basic contexts (Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Math, Social & Amplification.)
  • EL’s English -- no matter how limited– is an asset for learning. You work with what you’ve got!
  • WIDA is designed to help allteachersmodify the language demands of instruction to provide LEP students with meaningful access to content.
wida proficiency levels nutshell perspective
WIDA Proficiency Levels (Nutshell Perspective)

WIDA Levels describe the difficulty of the language we can reasonably expect a student to be able to use for grade-level content learning.

slide12

Up the Triangle = A More Specific View

(“Yeah, but what does that look like?”)

But what might that look like in a particular lesson in a particular unit?

Remember! language serves content learning

But what does that look like at different grades? With different language domains? (Speak/Listen/ Read/Write)

What students can do with language BROADLY

slide16

Up the Triangle = A More Specific View

But what does that look like at different grades? With different language domains? (Speak/Listen/ Read/Write)

Performance Defs informed by the CVC Criteria

What students can do with language BROADLY

try it
Try it!
  • Mark evidence of the Linguistic Complexity in yellow.
  • Mark evidence of Vocabulary Usage in pink.
  • Mark evidence of Language Control in green.
  • Verify by looking up and down the strands. Can you see the differences?
slide20

What about BLUE?

Language Control is clearer in the productive domains – speaking and writing – where it refers to the extent to which errors affect comprehension.

In the receptive domains (Listening & Reading), think of “language control” as referring to how closely the speaker has to monitor his/her language to be sure not to lose the listeners.

student friendly can do s
“Student-Friendly” Can-Do’s
  • Make Can Do’s into “I can…’s”
  • “The WIDA CAN DO Descriptors [can be]used by ESL teachers in coaching gen-ed teachers about differentiated instruction for ELs”(WIDA webpage).
student friendly s do not replace can do s
Student-Friendly’s do NOTReplace Can Do’s

Remember: These do NOT come from WIDA! They come from John & Rita

slide26

Look at the Can-Do Descriptors and the Child-Friendly Can-Do Descriptors side-by-side

  • What do you notice?
  • What difference do you notice?
slide28

Up the Triangle = A More Specific View but …we now have enough to work with….

Student Friendly Can-Do’s

But what does that look like at different grades? With different language domains? (Speak/Listen/ Read/Write)

What students can do with language BROADLY

basically
Basically …
  • The WIDA Tools are designed to indicate what students should be able to do in the service of grade-level learning at their proficiency level
  • But we recommend alsousing them tool to bridge from one level to the next (as a tool for ELD)
  • Can-Do Descriptors (combined with the CVC Criteria)can be the heart of progress-monitoring.
data based decision making
Data-Based Decision Making
  • Assess
  • Analyze results
  • Set goals for student growth-plan interventions to meet goals
  • Teach for growth toward goals
  • Reassess
  • Tweak plans

Repeat  Repeat  Repeat

Continuous Improvement Model

why can we use the can do s as a eld progress monitoring tool
Whycan we use the Can-Do’s as a ELD Progress Monitoring Tool?
  • Because the Can-Do Descriptors are essentially a Developmental Learning progression
  • cf. Krashen & Terrell’s Natural Order Hypothesis
slide35

There are other Learning Progressions for English Language Development

Susana Dutro’s ELD Matrix of Grammatical Forms

slide36

But … you may want to useWIDA as your main monitoring tool and

Dutro’s Matrix as the supplement.

Why?

Talk amongst yourselves!

Susana Dutro’s ELD Matrix of Grammatical Forms

the pm tool in action sort of john rita discuss theme and give examples in spanish
The PM Tool In Action … sort of …. John & Rita discuss “Theme” and give examples … in Spanish
plus a class eld progress monitoring form
Plus … a Class ELD Progress Monitoring Form

Question:How often would you do a focused speaking progress assessment like this? Especially considering that you might also be monitoring progress in the other three domains?

How can you use this in your teaching?

steps for using data based motivation
Steps for Using Data-Based Motivation
  • Share criteria / norms with students
  • Teach students to look at / analyze their own data

teaching students to analyze data
Teaching Students to Analyze Data
  • Where do I want/need to be?
    • Look at the Norms / Criteria
  • Where am I now?
    • Look at Current Data
  • How can I get there?
    • Students reflect on data
      • What does the data tell me about my learning?
      • How can I improve?
    • Students set goals for growth
why share kid friendly can do s
Why Share “Kid-Friendly” Can Do’s?
  • Students and teacher(s) have a clear target
  • Makes Can Do’s into “I can…’s”
  • Post them? Refer to them? Give students Can Do booklets? Have level 2 and level 3 set goals?

  • 1. Go to the WIKI, look around, and become a member.
  • Talk to colleagues about this session / share the Wiki site.
  • Go to the WIKI after June 28 to see how WIDA’s take on all this compares with ours.
  • Implement a version of this system with your students next fall.
  • Watch for Exemplars.
