A Map for Teaching and Assessing California's English Language Development (ELD) and English Language Arts (ELA) Standards for English Learners.
WestEd, San Francisco, CA. Northern California Comprehensive Assistance Center.
The purpose of this document is to help teachers, schools, and districts see clearly the relationship between California's English Language Arts (ELA) and English Language Development (ELD) standards and to design and implement an articulated and integrated system of instruction and assessment for English learners. ELA standards are written by grade level, except grades 9-10 and 11-12; ELD standards are written by grade span (K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12). The ELA standards were developed as the ultimate objective, with the ELD standards serving as the on-ramp. The intent is for students to progress through the ELD levels to acquire the skills necessary to become proficient on rigorous, grade level ELA standards. This document places the standards side by side, standard by standard, to provide a map to help teachers plan integrated instruction and assessments. Each grade span is divided into the categories: Listening and Speaking; Reading Word Analysis; Reading Fluency and Systematic Vocabulary Development; Reading Comprehension; Writing Strategies and Applications; Writing Conventions; and Literary Response and Analysis.
