Tomorrow and Thursday, the Department of Early Education and Care — in partnership with WIDA Early Years — is hosting a two-day institute on the WIDA Early English Language Development (E-ELD) Standards Framework.
“Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the WIDA Early English Language Development (E-ELD) Standards Framework, and how to apply that understanding to their daily work with children,” according to a program announcement.
We recently blogged about E-ELD here.
Participants who attend the institute will be able to:
• “Identify the foundational principles and components of the WIDA E-ELD Standards Framework”
• “Connect the WIDA E-ELD Standards Framework to the Massachusetts Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences and/or Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework,” and
• “Apply the WIDA E-ELD Standards Framework to daily routines and activities throughout a variety of early education and care settings”
