Description

"This is an era of extraordinary promise and support for addressing the needs of California's English learners. That's why this book, The California ELD Standards Companion, is so important. It's exactly the kind of bridge teachers need between standards and what it looks like in the classroom." -LAURIE OLSEN, Strategic Adviser, The Sobrato Early Academic Language (SEAL) Initiative Just for California teachers! California teachers: you're going to love this! Here at last is that single teaching resource for making the critical link between our ELD Standards and the CCSS ELA Standards. Standard by standard, you'll quickly discover how to integrate language development into your day-to-day content instruction, armed with an insider's understanding of how best to support our many English learners. Modeled after Jim Burke's Common Core series, this Grades K-2 volume of The California ELD Standards Companion is every bit "that version of the standards you wish you had" because it's just so easy to digest and apply. It's all here: Horizontal and vertical views reveal how each ELD Standard changes and progresses grade by grade and proficiency level by proficiency level. What the Student Does Sections, also scannable by grade and proficiency level, unpack in student-friendly language what meeting a standard looks like in practice. CCSS ELA Standards are displayed side by side with California's ELD Standards so you can appreciate the purposeful alignment between the two as the basis for remodeling instructional practice. What the Teacher Does Sections provide specific instructional guidance by grade band, including student prompts and tips for differentiation across proficiency level. A dedicated vocabulary section offers a quick-reference glossary of key words and phrases as they are used within each ELD Standard. Each section concludes with a vignette from the California ELA/ELD Framework to illustrate exemplary standards-based instruction. Thanks to the ELD Standards, we are now free to teach our ELs the way we knew best all along: language and content taught hand in hand across the school day. Lean on Ivannia Soto and Linda Carstens' California ELD Standards Companion as your one-stop guide for delivering that excellent education our ELs so deeply deserve.

Author Biography

Ivannia Soto, Ph.D. Dr. Ivannia Soto is Professor of Education at Whittier College, where she specializes in second language acquisition, systemic reform for English language learners (ELLs), and urban education. She began her career in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), where she taught English and English Language Development to a population made of up 99.9% Latinos, who either were or had been ELLs. Before becoming a professor, Dr. Soto also served LAUSD as a literacy coach and district office administrator. She has presented on literacy and language topics at various conferences, including the National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE), the California Association for Bilingual Association (CABE), the American Educational Research Association (AERA), and the National Urban Education Conference. As a consultant, Soto has worked with Stanford University's School Redesign Network (SRN), WestEd, and CABE, as well as a variety of districts and county offices in California, providing technical assistance for systemic reform for ELLs and Title III. Soto has authored and co-authored seven books, including The Literacy Gaps: Building Bridges for ELLs and SELs; ELL Shadowing as a Catalyst for Change, which was recognized by Education Trust-West as a promising practice for ELLs in 2018; From Spoken to Written Language with ELLs; and the Academic English Mastery four-book series. Together, the books tell a story of how to systemically close achievement gaps with ELLs by increasing their academic language production across content areas. Soto is Executive Director of the Institute for Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching (ICLRT) at Whittier College, whose mission it is to promote relevant research and develop academic resources for ELLs and Standard English Learners (SELs) via linguistically and culturally responsive teaching practices. Before retirement, Linda Carstens was the Director of Professional Learning at the School Redesign Network at the School of Education, Stanford University. She has over 30 years of district-level administrator experience in California, in San Diego City Schools, and other school districts, primarily in the areas of standards, assessment, curriculum and instruction as part of systemic reform, and in services for English Language Learners. She also served as a Visiting Educator in the Accountability Branch of the California Department of Education. As a senior researcher at WestEd, she worked with several California districts in the area of systemic reform and second language, and for two years, co-provided the state's Title III technical assistance obligation to districts. She earned a Ph.D. in multicultural education from Claremont Graduate University in 1993 and an M.A from San Diego State University in Curriculum and Instruction in 1987. Her undergraduate degree in Spanish and Elementary Education was from Clarke College in 1969. In addition to her other educational experiences, she has also guest-taught in her family hometown of Arienzo, Italy and at the Centro del Muchacho Trabajador in Quito, Ecuador. Linda resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she volunteers her time with local organizations. She has been a member of two national advisory boards related to education for second language students and serves as a peer reviewer for federal ESSA and NCLB competitions, and for Ed Reports and the English Learner Success Forum's curriculum development projects. A longtime English teacher, Jim Burke is the author of more than 20 books and senior consultant for the Holt McDougal Literature program. Jim has received several awards, including the 2000 NCTE Exemplary English Leadership Award. In 2009, he created the English Companion Ning-the largest online community of English teachers in the world. More recently, Jim has served on the AP English Course and Exam Review Commission and the PARCC Consortium.
