Assessment: 400 pts.

Teachers can design and implement lessons that teach ELs content and attend to language and literacy development.

Students have identified units and lessons they would like to make more attentive to developing their own students' content knowledge and literacy development. They have learned about academic language development, assessment, language acquisition, and building on the academic, background and cultural knowledge students bring to learning. They have learned to assess the literacy development of Els and identify next steps in their language and literacy development.
