As a director/professional development provider

This practical guide helps you address the professional development (PD) gap many teachers face when trying to use an English language learner’s English language development (ELD) level to differentiate core content instruction. Following template-based sample assignments, each chapter shows teachers how to use the WIDA ELD levels to differentiate instruction and assessment across all content areas. And each chapter ends with PD activities and resources so practitioners can practice and apply what they’ve learned.

The accompanying flip chart lists performance indicators and instructional and assessment strategies for five levels of ELD. It can be used as a quick-reference classroom resource.
