“Teaching and Learning Go Hand in Hand.”
English Language Development (ELD) is a component of a total program designed to serve the needs of ELL. ELD is a specific curriculum that addresses the teaching of the English language according to the level of proficiency ofthe ELL student.
All learners acquire English faster and easier if the curriculum they receive and the methodologies utilized to deliver the curriculum are finely tuned to their evolving fluency. The ELD curriculum is essential to the succes of all ELL students and is closely linked to the first goal of bilingual education; English language proficiency.
Our goal is to increase the level of English proficiency for students whose first language is a language other than English. By doing so, we are increasing the likelihood of academic achievement as well as productivity in the workplace in America.
