The Common Core, English Learners, and Morphology 101: Unpacking LS.4 for ELLs
Hickey, Pamela J.; Lewis, Tarie
Language and Literacy Spectrum, v23 p69-84 2013
The Common Core Learning Standards set forth learning goals for all students, including English learners, but this document does not provide information on effective literacy instruction for English learners or unpack the specific resources and challenges that bilingual students bring to the classroom. Language Standard 4 addresses morphological development across grade levels, a focus that holds particular advantages and issues for second language learners. In this article, we provide an overview of morphology as it is addressed through the CCLS, identify the issues around the development of morphological awareness in English for second language learners, and share effective instructional practices and resources for appropriately supporting the morphological development of bilingual students. (Contains 4 tables.)
