3 Using ACCESS for ELLs Score Reports to Inform Instruction

4 Objectives Goal: Participants will develop an understanding of the WIDA ELD Standards and how to apply them in order to support the acquisition of academic language. Learning outcomes: As a result of completing this training, we will Describe and discuss the importance of understanding linguistically and culturally diverse students through student data analysis. Locate and interpret the WIDA Guiding Principles of Language Development and Can Do Descriptors. Express the connections between the ELD Standards, grade-level clusters, and specific content areas. Demonstrate understanding by creating transformations of MPIs.

17 CAN DO Descriptors: A Good Starting Point Interpret ACCESS for ELLs scores Includes supports through Level 4 Share with students families

18 A Note of Caution CAN DO Descriptors Are applicable across the five English language proficiency standards Are topic-neutral Function independently within a given level of language proficiency Model Performance Indicators Are contextualized within each English language proficiency standard Are topic-specific Scaffold from one level of language proficiency to the next across the strand 2007 p. RG58

19 CAN DO Descriptors 2007 p. RG58

20 Who should use CAN DO Descriptors? Parents Teachers and Leaders Resource Teachers

21 Using CAN DOs in Practice I have personally used the Can Do s for content-area teachers as a general guideline to start the conversation of what category a student falls in and what a student is currently able to do. I would then use the MPIs to create language goals for an individual student to make progress in English language proficiency. Lindsay Fults, DPI ESL/Title III Consultant

22 CAN DO Name Charts

23 Having a Conversation About What a Student CAN DO
