English Language Development

How WIDA Standards are used….

 The WIDA Standards are used to guide our lesson planning in the ESL classroom.  The objectives are created by using the Model Performance Indicators (MPIs) listed in our WIDA English Language Proficiency Standards and Resource Guide.  These indicators enable us to accurately present materials in a structured and effective way in order for our students to achieve success not only in our class, but in their content area classes as well.

WIDA - CAN DO Descriptors:  Can Do Descriptors highlight what language learners can do at various stages of language development
