The purpose of the ESL.ELD session entitled ELD Standards in the Era of Common Core is to help practitioners:
  • understand how the changes in the WIDA ELD standard from 2007 to 2012 enhance [[#|supports]] and make concepts more explicit
  • connect aspects of the WIDA ELD standards to CC/ES and other state led LEP initiatives
  • share resources which will aid in building and help sustain local capacity


ELD Standards in the Era of Common Core will scaffold participants understanding and utilization of the WIDA ELD Standards in relation to the CCSS/ES and other state led LEP initiatives: SIOP, ExC-ELL and LinguaFolio. The 90 minute interactive session will look at how the WIDA standaerds have been remodeled (2007/2012) and will include a tour of the ESL wiki (http://eldnces.ncdpi.wikispaces.net/Home+%28ELD%29) showing where professional development resources and materials are located. By the end of this session, participants will be able to brush away the dust of remodeling and move into the Era of Common Core with confidence!
