Overview of the Common Core State Standards Initiatives for ELLs





Hi everyone!

I was cruising the internet looking for articles that related to ELD and the Common Core State Standards.  I found this publication from TESOL titled:
Overview of the
Common Core State
Standards Initiatives for ELLs
A TESOL Issue Brief
March 2013
This article includes a brief history of the Common Core movement.  It goes on to cover the development of the Common Core, ELL demographics, CCSS shifts and the expertise teachers will need to teach ELL.  English language proficiency development Standards and the Common Core are discussed, as well as, ELPA 21,the role of ESL and Bilingual teachers, and TESOL’s role in the implementation ot the standards for ELL.


Happy Teaching,
