Newcomer & ELD Curriculum Institute

ELLMA Office


This institute will provide information, resources, and dedicated time to create materials to support our recently arrived students.

Our goals for Elementary Newcomer and ELD teachers:

  • learn how to effectively implement the newcomer guided reading curriculum RIGOR
  • learn strategies and practices to support newcomers in a balanced literacy framework
  • accelerate language learning through science content

Our goals for Secondary Newcomer and ELD teachers to create:
  • a scope and sequence of key performance tasks for next year
  • a unit outline that identifies how key language and literacy learning experiences lead to the performance task.
  • practice in key newcomer and ELD instructional practices
