Reflect and Connect

Choose one or more prompts below and respond in your Reflection Journal AND/OR discuss in a face-to-face or online group: 

  • Choose one standard from Part I of the CA ELD Standards: Interacting in Meaningful Ways that you feel you do well. Explain why and give an example. Choose one standard you feel you could work to improve in your practice. Explain why and give an example of what you might do.

  • What’s similar in what’s called for in the CA ELD Standards to what you do in your current practice? What’s different or new?
  • Imagine that an English learner student, new to the U.S. and at the emerging level of English language proficiency, came into your class tomorrow. How would you use the CA ELD Standards in Part 1: Interacting in Meaningful Ways as a guide to support this student to interact meaningfully in your class?

Join your district or county's online community of practice, or join other educators working with English learners to share ideas and resources in the California ELD Community Group.

If you need a review for how to engage in online communities of practice, review the Community of Practice tutorial.
