ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT (ELD)

Department Overview

The purpose of the English Language Development courses is to provide intensive language instruction to prepare students for success in mainstream courses. Designated ELD is a one period protected time during the regular school day when teachers use the CA ELD standards as the focal standards in ways that build into and from content instruction. The courses support ELs in developing the discourse practices, grammatical structures, and vocabulary necessary for successful participation in academic tasks in all content areas. There is a strong emphasis on oral language development, reading, and writing as students learn to use English in new ways and develop their awareness of how English works in both spoken and written language. Integrated ELD is taught throughout the day, across the disciplines using the CA ELD standards in tandem with the CCSS LA/Literacy standards.
