Common Core and ELLs Blog: Highlights from 2013

Happy New Year, everyone!

Before we launch our new Common Core and ELLs topics for 2014, we want to do a recap of some of the highlights from all of the great content posted in 2013. Throughout the year, blogger Dr. Diane Staehr Fenner covered quite a bit of ground in terms of what the new college- and career-ready standards will mean for English language learners, their teachers, and their schools.

Here, in no particular order, are some of the most popular posts she wrote last year, each of which features in-depth information as well as multiple links to recommended resources and related posts.  (Some of these posts are the first part in a series; links to the following posts are included in each article.)

Also, don’t forget to take a look at Colorín Colorado’s Common Core for ELLs section while you’re at it!
