ELD Class Syllabus

ELD 1 and ELD 2 

 Mrs. Wang (793-9090 x 58007)

 

 

 

    

    Level 1 and Level 2 ELD classes (English Language Development classes) are for students who come from a non-English speaking environment and are still learning English at their early or intermediate stages.  In the ELD class, students not only have opportunities to learn the fundamentals of English, but also work on English reading and writing that involve their grade-level critical thinking skills.   

     Learning activities in class are designed to help students interact in meaningful ways with the teacher and their fellow students.  Students learn to improve their English when they do various exercises in listening, speaking, reading, and writing.  They read and listen to English and express themselves in speaking or writing on a regular basis.

     Textbooks and curricula for ELD 1 and ELD 2 classes include Inside by National Geographic.  Some supplementary materials and an online program Lexia will be used for grammar, reading, and writing. 

     Outside reading is required as an ongoing reading assignment.  Students should read and log their reading every day.  Reading logs count as 10% of the overall grade of each quarter.  The teacher will show sample reading logs and give more details in class.
