Session II - Communities of Practice: Mastering the English Language Proficiency Standards (Berkeley and Online)

Name Session II - Communities of Practice: Mastering the English Language Proficiency Standards (Berkeley and Online)
Start 3/6/2020 12:00 PM
End 3/6/2020 3:00 PM
Description The California Department of Education (CDE) and the California Adult Literacy Professional Development Project (CALPRO) are pleased to offer a regional Community of Practice (CoP) on the newest module, Mastering the English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards. This blended learning CoP incorporates both online collaborative work and face-to-face sessions to be held in Berkeley. This module will introduce participants to the English Language Proficiency Standards and provide strategies for using the standards to guide and inform instruction. English as a second language (ESL) instructors can benefit from familiarity with and reliance on the ELP Standards for Adult Education (AE) to guide instruction toward the increased rigor and skills necessary for successful transition to work or to postsecondary training or further education and for participation in communities that adult learners need.
Goals The new English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards for Adult Education were released in fall 2016. The goals of this module are to introduce ESL instructors to the new standards and how they provide the language support to meet the rigorous requirements of the College and Career Readiness Standards for adults; to explore and practice applying the standards to teaching; and to develop a deep understanding of the requirements of academic rigor along with the scaffolding strategies to help adult students reach their goals.
