The videos in this series show teachers teaching grade one English learner (EL) students the features and functions of English and how they can use the language to access grade-level content. The grade one CA ELD Standards are used as the focal standards to design intentional and purposeful designated ELD instruction, using the content standards to support the instruction. Grade one content standards are used as the focal standards to design rigorous, grade-level appropriate integrated ELD instruction, using the CA ELD Standards to support the instruction. The teachers lead students to make meaning of the academic content by providing opportunities for them to apply their learned language and linguistic resources, contribute to academic discussions with teachers and their peers, engage with grade-appropriate text, and write to demonstrate understanding.
