English Learners, English Language Development Standards, and the CCSS

This module provides an introduction to understanding and using the 2012 California English Language Development (CA ELD) standards to ensure English learner students have access to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Module content focuses on using the CA ELD standards in tandem with the CCSS for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and the Technical Subjects (ELA/Literacy) during mainstream content instruction, along with the CA ELD standards for designated ELD instruction. The module is presented in two sub-modules, the first providing an overview and introduction to ELD standards implementation; the second exploring in further depth how the CA ELD standards can be implemented both for designated ELD and in tandem with the CCSS for ELA/Literacy for content area instruction.
