Blog: Academic Language
This week, I’ll share some themes around the implementation of the edTPA that surfaced from three TESOL teacher educators who are using the edTPA with their ESL teacher candidates.
In this blog post, I’ll share the four recommendations from What Works Clearinghouse's new guidebook called Teaching Academic Content and Literacy to English Learners in Elementary and Middle School and show how Colorín Colorado resources support the guidebook’s recommendations.
This blog post is the third in a three-part series about the steps one elementary school with 60% ELLs took to increase collaboration between ESOL teachers and content teachers in order to better meet the language needs of ELLs in their school.
We’re going to tell you about two new online resources focused on implementing the standards with English language learners and we’d love to hear about ways you might use them in your own setting.
As you prepare for a new school year, I’d like to share with you a rich multimedia project that was recently added to Colorín Colorado. The Common Core in Poughkeepsie, NY highlights authentic ways six ESL teachers worked with middle and high school ELLs to implement Common Core-aligned lessons.
We are very excited to share a new article from Colorín Colorado written by Emily Miller, a second- and third-grade bilingual resource teacher for the Madison, WI Metropolitan School District. Emily served on the Next Generation Science Standards' (NGSS) Elementary Writing Team as well as the Diversity & Equity Team.
The New York State Department of Education (NYSED) has recently released newly created draft language progressions for ELLs that it has developed via its Bilingual Common Core Initiative.
This week’s blog post will focus on the new edTPA assessment for English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher candidates and how the edTPA ties in to the Common Core.
More new resources that will support ELLs with instruction aligned to the Common Core State Standards. This time, the new resources come in the form of Resource Guides for scaffolding the instruction of ELLs. I’ll tell you what the Resource Guides are, how they were developed, and I'll highlight some features of each.
