English Language Development » ELD III


In this two-period ELD Language Arts course, students nearing reasonable fluency in English will use the language in more complex, cognitively demanding situations with increasing independence. ELD 3 prepares students to 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. Students are provided with interactive instruction and activities, a print-rich environment, and public speaking experiences in order to prepare students for mainstream English and other content classes.
