English learners at all levels of English language proficiency (Emerging, Expanding, Bridging) can use language in meaningful and relevant ways across the content areas. In integrated ELD, the CA ELD Standards are used in tandem with the CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy and other content standards.
 

Choose one or more of the following videos to see how integrated ELD looks in Pre-K through 2nd grade classrooms. As you watch, think about the following:
 

  1. The ways in which the instructional practices you see support language and literacy development for English learners.
  2. How the teacher might use the CA ELD Standards as a guide to provide appropriate levels of scaffolding for English learners at different English language proficiency levels.
