ESL Day - Workshop A- ELP Standards, Part I Introduction to the ELP Standards (AM) - MDC, Hartford


with Halloran/ Foertsch

Calendar Mar 6, 2020 at 9:30 am

ELP Standards Part I: Introduction to ELP Standards.  This workshop will provide an introduction to the English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards. The ELP Standards are derived from the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) which are required in all Adult Education programs. The ELP Standards address the same competencies but in a way that relate to instruction provided in the ESL classroom. The CSDE requires that all ESL teachers become conversant with and use the ELP Standards in the development of curriculum and ESL instruction. ELP Standards Part 1 is a pre-requisite for participation in ELP Standards Part II.

Presented by Aileen Halloran and Michele Foertsch
