CCSSO Webinar: English Language Learners and Science: Using the ELPD Framework

Date: November 2, 2012

Time: 1:00 p.m. ET (Recording)

Description: CCSSO is pleased to announce the publication of a new CCSSO resource to provide guidance to states on aligning English Language Proficiency standards with the Common Core State Standards and the forthcoming Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The English Language Proficiency Development (ELPD) Framework outlines the underlying English language practices found in the CCSS and the NGSS, communicates to ELL stakeholders the language that all ELLs must acquire in order to successfully engage the CCSS and NGSS, and specifies a procedure by which to evaluate the degree of alignment present between the Framework and ELP standards under consideration or adopted by states.

To assist states and interested stakeholders in using the framework, CCSSO hosted a four-part webinar series on this publication. This webinar  focused on the key practices in forthcoming Next Generation Science standards and the features of discipline-specific language used by teachers and students while engaged in the learning of these key practices.
