The evidence-based and collaboratively-built resources for teachers are so much more than that. New or experienced teachers of multilingual learners are welcome to attend this session which will feature: the five WIDA Standards Statements; conceptual framing and integration of content and language; Key Language Uses; these provide focus and coherence; Language Expectations for setting goals for content-driven language learning; Proficiency Level Descriptors which provide a detailed description of how students might develop language across six levels of English language proficiency; and Practical approaches for the classroom will be shared along with purposeful planning techniques using the new 2020 WIDA Standards resources. Participants will leave with an improved knowledge of the updated 2020 WIDA ELD Standards and confidence in providing informed instruction to all multilingual learners, no matter their proficiency level. PLUS, each participant will receive a hard copy resource of the WIDA 2020 Standards edition!
