Learning How English Works

Assessing and Teaching Part II of the California ELD Standards 

Our ELD standards call for students to "Interact in Meaningful Ways" (Part I) and to "Learn How English Works" (Part II). This two-day institute will build participants' knowledge about the academic language of the Part II standards and provide strategies to assess and teach them.

  • Consider classroom language demands connected to the California ELD standards
  • Practice the Student Work Analysis Protocol (SWAP) with a focus on language to set learning goals
  • Participate in an instructional routine sequence for teaching language
  • Experience strategies for teaching text, sentence, and word level language
