Meeting the Demands of the Common Core State Standards

 

We are often asked how E.L. Achieve’s initiatives are aligned to the Common Core State Standards pdf. It is an important question, and the answer is critical to any district interested in partnering with us.

The Common Core State Standards place an unprecedented emphasis on language. They recognize that students must use a multi-faceted knowledge of English in their writing and speaking and make informed, skillful language choices to express themselves. Students are expected to demonstrate their understanding of content readings and communicate original ideas through discussions, presentations, and written performance tasks. 

These shifts correspond directly to E.L. Achieve’s vision of instruction and the content of our professional development for teachers and administrators

Schools must prioritize both a dedicated, targeted ELD block and the integration of English language learning into each content area.

The following documents illustrate how E.L. Achieve’s Constructing Meaning reinforces the critical pedagogical shifts of the CCSS by infusing explicit language support into content instruction:

The following documents articulate how E.L. Achieve’s Systematic ELD realizes the Common Core and Next Generation ELD/ELP Standards call for dedicated language instruction targeting students’ level of English proficiency.

There is little disagreement about some of the challenges English learners face in meeting the content and language demands of grade-level standards. To achieve academic success, students must be able to extract meaning and information from texts, evaluate evidence and relate it to other ideas and facts, and make informed, skillful language choices to express themselves.
