Draft ELD & NGSS, Math Standards Correspondences Available

In response to Assembly Bill (AB) 899, requiring that the ELD Standards be comparable in rigor and specificity to the standards for mathematics and science, State Superintendent Tom Torlakson contracted with WestEd to review the mathematics and science academic content standards and ensure that the language demands inherent in these content standards are adequately addressed by the CA ELD Standards.

WestEd conducted a study to determine the correspondences between the California ELD Standards and the standards for math and science, in an attempt to identify modifications (or augmentations) necessary to the California ELD Standards.

The DRAFT version of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and ELD correspondences is now available, and can be downloaded here for viewing.

CCSS Walkthrough Feedback Form Available

Our consulting team has developed a useful walkthrough tool, built using the Forms tool within Google Drive.  This form allows you to choose an emphasis on Literacy Instructional Shifts, Mathematics Instructional Shifts, or 21st Century Skills, and offers feedback for teachers to hone their skills.  


The form is not intended to be an evaluative tool, and both teacher and observer can use the tool together for the benefit of the teacher and students.

If you'd like to receive a copy of the CCSS Walkthrough Feedback Form to edit and use for your own district or school, please email Steve Woods for more information and assistance.


We're not alone in seeing the value of creating walkthrough tools using Google.  Read Michael Graham's article on TICAL to see another method of gathering classroom data using your mobile device.
