Have you ever wondered how to ensure that your ELL students are learning both language and content standards during your instructional lessons? Now you can find the information in the WIDA bulletin. The WIDA bulletin provides guidance for teachers of English Language Arts who are implementing the Common Core State Standards. The new standards expect students to develop more complex language as well be able to collaborate and work well with others.
Below you will find six key Common Core State Standards practices to use if you teach English Language Arts.
