designed for ESL and bilingual teachers
Outcome: ESL and bilingual teachers are ready to explain and model the use of the WIDA ELP Standards to classroom teachers in order to differentiate instruction and assessment for English learners.
Recommended Prerequisite: Differentiate Instruction and Assessment for English Proficiency Levels
Time Needed: 4 to 8 hours
The ESL teachers in your school or district can provide valuable support to classroom teachers responsible for effective content instruction. Rather than re-teach the content in simplified English, ESL teachers can give on-the-spot advice for unit- and lesson-planning, can explain how to use the ELP standards to plan for different language levels in the classroom, and can model the thinking process of analyzing lessons for language complexity, academic words and phrases, and language teaching opportunities.
Maximize this great resource in your school or district by training your ESL specialists to give ongoing support. Help them get ready to guide others in the most effective use of the English Language Proficiency Standards.
