Getting Started with the CA ELD Standards Slide Bank* * These slides may be used as graphic representations of some concepts presented in the module and may be modified as needed (see Facilitator’s Guide for more information). Content provided by the California Comprehensive Center at WestEd
Some of the Big Pedagogical Shifts of the CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy 1.Close readings of complex informational and literary texts 2.Taking a stand and supporting it with evidence 3.Engaging in collaborative conversations about intellectually rich content 4.Using academic language and developing language awareness 5.Valuing multilingualism and cultural diversity Across the disciplines
The CA ELD Standards AMPLIFY the CCSS for ELA/Literacy. Spycher, WestEd (2013)
Key Shifts: 1999 to 2012 CA ELD Standards CA ELD Standards, Appendix B, CDE
CA ELD Standards: Elements Grade Level ELD Standards: Section 1: Goal, Critical Principles, At-a-glance Overview Section 2: Elaboration on Critical Principles Part I: Interacting in Meaningful Ways Part II: Learning About How English Works Part III: Using Foundational Literacy Skills Overview & Proficiency Level Descriptors (PLDs): Correspondences to the CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy CA’s EL Students Proficiency Level Descriptors (PLDs) Structure of the grade level standards Appendices: Appendix A: Foundational Literacy Skills Appendix B: Learning About How English Works Appendix C: Theory and Research Appendix D: Context, Development, Validation Glossary of Key Terms
Native Language EmergingExpandingBridgingLifelong Language Learning Native Language: Students come to school with a wide range of home language resources to be tapped. Lifelong Language Learning: Students who reach proficiency in English must continue to build breadth, depth, and complexity in comprehending and communicating in English in a wide variety of contexts.
The CA ELD Standards: Structure Section 1: 2-page “Goals, Critical Principles, and “At a Glance” overview Section 2: Grade level standards by proficiency levels
Section 1: Goals, Critical Principles, and “At-a- Glance” Overview Goal we have for our EL students in CA Correspondences to the CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy Critical Principles for carrying out the goal
Part I: Interacting in Meaningful Ways Part II: Learning About How English Works Part III: Foundational Literacy Skills Section 2: Grade Level ELD Standards by Proficiency Levels
ELD Standards: The Left Hand Column Signals that language development occurs in the context of using a variety of texts and engaging in meaningful discourse Shows the “many-to-many” correspondences between the CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy and the CA ELD Standards Related to how we make language choices depending on: Our purpose for using language The text types we’re using (both oral and written) and how they’re structured The relationship between the people using the language

17 Appendix C: Theoretical Foundations and Research Base Theories and research discussed in sections: Interacting in Meaningful and Intellectually Challenging Ways Scaffolding Developing Academic English The Importance of Vocabulary The Importance of Grammatical and Discourse- Level Understandings Other Relevant Guidance Documents
18 Appendix C: Theoretical Foundations and Research Base
Glossary: Your Secret Source of Knowledge about Language! Provides definitions, explanations, and examples of key terms in the ELD Standards and the CCSS for ELA/Literacy.
Integrated & Designated ELD Both/And Integrated ELD: All teachers with ELs in their classrooms use the CA ELD Standards in tandem with the focal CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy and other content standards. Designated ELD: A protected time during the regular school day when teachers use the CA ELD Standards as the focal standards in ways that build into and from content instruction in order to develop critical language ELs need for content learning in English.
Comprehensive ELD Instruction: Three Interrelated Areas From the draft CA ELA/ELD Framework for review by the IQC November 2013 Based on Halliday, 1978 Gibbons, 2002 Schleppegrell, 2004 Learning to use English Learning content through English English Language Development Learning about how English works
