PARTNER PROFILE

Common Core Standards for English Language Learners This project involved a partnership between the Albuquerque Teachers Federation and Colorín Colorado, a partnership project of PBS affiliate WETA and the AFT for educators and families of PreK-12 English language learners. It was made possible by a grant from the AFT Innovation Fund. In collaboration with Dr. Diane August, an expert on English language learners, a cadre of 15 teachers developed Common Core lessons in English language arts for grades 1, 4, and 8 that target the language and literacy needs of ELLs. Each unit includes a variety of activities scaffolded for ELLs of varying proficiency levels that can be adjusted as needed.
