This spring, UL partnered with a cohort of CA districts to improve designated/ targeted secondary ELD materials and professional development. This initiative involves cross-district educators as part of a multi-year network whose goal is not only to create/enhance instructtional materials, but to improve the programs, policies and/or practices for multilingual learners.
How can educators build on the assets that Multilingual learners bring as they return to the classroom this fall? How can district and site leaders support their teachers in focusing on acceleration rather than remediation for these students?
CLAVES is a small group language and literacy program intended to support the reading and writing development of multilingual learners (MLs) and their peers in upper elementary school. The program focuses on building linguistic and metalinguistic awareness to help comprehend text.
While the COVID-19 pandemic is a moment of unprecedented educational crisis, it’s also a unique opportunity to transform our approaches to supporting multilingual learners.
