Expanded View of the ELA/ELD Framework Resources A Collection of Resources That Support the Implementation of the English Language Arts/English Language Development Framework.
The California Department of Education (CDE) continues to develop and collect resources critical to implementing the California content standards and increasing student achievement. This select collection of resources connects the content in the ELA/ELD Framework with other resources from the CDE, as well as other reputable sources that address the five key instructional themes: meaning making, effective expression, language development, content knowledge, and foundational skills. The intent of this collection is to provide educators additional resources they can use to expand the scope of the guidance in the ELA/ELD Framework and to inform professional development and instructional decisions at all schools and districts.
The resources included here are structured around the five key themes in the ELA/ELD Framework. The resources are further organized by grade level and area of focus. The selection of resources begins with exemplars from the ELA/ELD Framework. These are supported by a selection of resources from the CDE Web site or originate from other sources, including national entities or local educational agencies in California. All resources included in this document have been reviewed by CDE staff to ensure, to the extent possible, that they
were created or recommended by a reliable source;
have been used in classrooms, schools, or districts;
demonstrate evidence of positive impact or evidence of usefulness for an intended audience (e.g., students, teachers, administrators, schools, districts);
are timely, given current educational priorities and policy developments;
reference research; and
are aligned to current standards.
Note: Additional resources may be added as they become available.
