ELA/ELD Performance Tasks: Connections to Instructional Shifts for ELA and ELD

Click HERE to access today's presentation slides

Integrated ELD
Integrated ELD will occur throughout the day and across all content areas.  Teachers will use the CA ELD standards “in tandem with the CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy and other content standards to support their ELs to learn rich content and develop advanced levels of English” (Source: CDE Framework Ch 2 P 90). 

Effective instructional experiences for ELs throughout the day and across the disciplines:
  • Are interactive and engaging, meaningful and relevant, and intellectually rich and challenging
  • Are appropriately scaffolded in order to provide strategic support that moves learners toward independence
  • Build both content knowledge and academic English
  • Value and build on primary language and culture and other forms of prior knowledge
