New California ELA/ELD Framework

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Bringing the Framework to Life

The state's new English Language Arts (ELA) and English Language Development (ELD) Framework specifies what curriculum should include, what instruction looks like, and innovative ways to think about both.Print flier​​

The framework is groundbreaking in its integration of language development across content areas. It is also a critical read for district and school leadership teams, teachers, literacy coaches, and others when considering instructional materials, planning, assessment, and professional learning.

With all the changes -- a more than 1,000-page framework, new California standards, the integration of ELA and ELD, and new assessments -- it's the perfect time to see how it all works together.

 Upcoming ELA/ELD Framework workshops coming soon!
