California Releases Draft ELD (ESL) Standards


The Common Core standards don’t include ones specifically for English Language Learners, though they will obviously have some impact on them (see The Best Resources For Learning About Common Core Standards & English Language Learners).

The State of California has just released its new draft Standards for English Language Development (ELD — that’s what it’s called here instead of ESL), and they are accepting comments until August 6th.

I haven’t gotten a chance to review them yet. The ones we have now are pretty decent, so I hope these new ones have only made them better and not worse…
