Room 203

Much can be learned from districts and states that intentionally provide a convergence of standards, assessments and professional development necessary for student success. Now with states’ adoption and implementation of college and career-ready content standards, the expectations for student performance are higher than ever before. This session highlights supports to educators to shape instruction for English Learners (ELs) to participate fully and achieve at high levels in content instruction. The ELPA21 Consortium has partnered with Stanford's Understanding Language Project to create professional development modules to assist educators to refine their instruction for ELs. Participants will use tools for observation of student performance and for teacher collaboration. They will gain an understanding of how new English Language Proficiency Standards designed to address key practices and performances in the CCSS and NGSS are used in districts and schools to support achievement.
