Our online discussions will spark ideas of resources that may be helpful to some of you. This page will serve as a place to post these materials. I will start this out by listing a few resources that may be helpful to teachers working with English language learners.
WIDA Consortium website: We will refer to this website frequently throughout the course. WIDA produces the ACCESS for ELLs English Language Proficiency exam that Montana adopted last year. It’s a good idea to get familiar with this website. There are many resources here!
Common Core and English Language Learners: A Stanford University-led project called Understanding Language on the academic language necessary for ELLs to access the Common Core State Standards. Academic research and teacher resources available.
