ELD II

As students progress to an intermediate level in English language proficiency, they move towards using the English language in more complex, cognitively demanding situations. In this multi-period ELD Language Arts course, students will further learn and communicate about a range of topics and academic content areas through listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities that target high-level thinking with appropriate support. Through interactive instruction students are provided opportunities to express their own ideas as well as to question, interpret, and evaluate the ideas of others. Prerequisite/ELPAC: ELD 1 and/or "Intermediate" level on the ELPAC Initial or Summative Assessment.
