Professional Development:
English Language Arts/English Language Development
With the 2010 adoption of the California Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Literacy in History Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects AND the 2012 adoption of the English Language Development Standards, California is leading the charge by being the first state to create a Framework based around these two sets of standards.

Professional development sessions will provide teachers with pedagogy, research, in-depth study of standards, instructional strategies, and hands on activities to successfully implement ELA and ELD programs in the classroom. Participants will also be provided up to date information regarding upcoming changes to English Language Development testing.
