Montgomery, Joel R.
Online Submission
This paper identifies a series of activities which reinforce each other and form part of a thematic unit of instruction across the content areas for English language learners (ELLs). These activities will be connected to the relevant English language proficiency (ELP) standards established at level three by the World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) Consortium (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages [TESOL], 2005; World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment Consortium, 2008)1. Relevant research into design, implementation, and assessment of ELL learning activities is discussed. The paper concludes with a summary of the information reviewed and recommendations for next steps. (Contains 4 tables and 1 footnote.)
