Check out the new materials that are available for ESL teachers in Schoolnet!

The instructional improvement portion of Home Base (Schoolnet) now has English Language Development (ELD) content standards and close to 200 instructional materials aligned to those standards. Materials include lesson plans, unit plans and other resources. The best way to find the materials in Schoolnet is by filtering on “ESL” as a subject or searching by the ELD standards.

Special thanks to two contributors: First, Angel Mills, District ESL Lead Teacher and Program Specialist for Lee County Schools, who helped develop the dot notation for the English Development Standards so that they could be included in Home Base (http://center.ncsu.edu/standards/NCES/ESL/nceld.pdf). This work was part of Angel’s project as a 2013-14 Home Base Kenan Fellow with the Learning Systems Division at the NCDPI. Secondly, we want to thank Joni Allison, aSecondary Instructional Coach for Henderson County Public Schools, who also serves as a 2013-14 Home Base Kenan Fellow. She worked with Angel in tagging the ESL resources.
