English Language Development (ELD) Standards

English Language Development Standards
The ELD Standards address language proficiency, not content knowledge.
For example, the ELD Standards focus on academic language of math, not the math/computation itself. 
The ELD Standards reflect the social and academic language expectations of ELs in grades Pre-K-12.
 
Can Do Descriptors
The Can Do Descriptors provide a general overview of the language skills that English learners possess at each level of language proficiency. The link below provides access to the Can Dos for Pre-K-12th grade.
 
 
This is an excellent resource for establishing student-friendly language goals in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing!
