Support Your Local EL's
Inquiry Based Learning makes learning more meaningful.
Information is given by the teacher.
Teacher does the following
states the lesson objective
connects to previous material
Students practice with guidance and feedback.
Students demonstrate and then have independent practice.
Culturally & Linguistically Responsive Pedagogy
Supporting Students Strategically
Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
- Universally un-frustrating
- Designed for every student
- Learning occurs in multiple ways
Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)
Data analyzed-> Curriculum, instruction, student services
Sharing Responsibility

Definition: temporary help that is future oriented
Comprehension + Interpretation of Complex Texts
"Ensures that all ELs are
engaged with intellectually rich content
and are able to
read texts closely
with scaffolding
adapted to their particular language learning needs
Effective Expression + Content
Implications for Integrated ELD
• "It is important to note that designated ELD instruction
time is
not intended to isolate or segregate ELs
, nor should it
preclude non­ELs
from receiving similar instruction. Rather, designated ELD instruction time is intended to be used as
a protected time when ELs receive the type of instruction that accelerates their English language and literacy development
over-arching goal:
Leaning English as an Additional Language

There is a dual responsibility: to learn English, and to learn content through English.

EL’s at all levels of proficiency are able to engage in intellectually challenging activities with appropriate support from teachers who address their language and academic learning goals.
Emerging, Expanding, Bridging
Remember, language does not necessarily occur in a linear fashion.
Cross-Language Relationships
Language knowledge, skills, and abilities from one language can transfer to the development and literacy of English.

ELD Instruction
Remember, EL’s are learning to use English while simultaneously learning content knowledge through English, AND learning about English (meaning and context).

EL’s develop their skills primarily through meaningful interactions with others and through intellectually-rich content and texts.

Integrated ELD
English Language Development taught throughout the day and across the disciplines.
Use CA Common Core State Standards for ELA/Literacy
Collaborative Discussions About Content
Provide opportunities for EL students to actively contribute to conversations and not just listen passively.
~All of this is done through well planned, intentional, and structured instruction~
Essential Question
