Sample Of Proficiency Level Descriptors Snapshot of ELL Stage I: Kindergarten Listening and Speaking student coming into ELL program. PROFICIENCY LEVEL DESCRIPTORS Pre-Emergent A student at this level has no ability or a very limited ability to communicate in English. Emergent A student at this level is able to respond using isolated words, strings of nouns and verbs, and functional phrases with linguistic support. Basic A student at this level consistently responds using grammatically correct phrases and simple sentences in social and academic settings with linguistic support. Low Intermediate A student at this level consistently expresses and responds using grammatically correct simple sentences in social and academic settings. High Intermediate A student at this level consistently expresses and responds using grammatically correct simple sentences, including details, in social and academic settings. ELL Stage I: Kindergarten Listening and Speaking “ Snapshot” of the ELL’s language ability as evidenced by the current assessment
Proficient The students will demonstrate competency in (Domain) based on the knowledge, skills and abilities specified in the Performance Indicators at the High Intermediate level in order to access grade-level academic content.

Determining the Language Objective of a Lesson
What is the concept (language focus) you want your students to be able to do?
Create an outcome-based language objective which consists of action verbs. It states what you will actually see the students doing when the objective is performed and the actions will be something that can be observed.
By thinking of the language objective first, activities that do not naturally lend themselves to meeting the language goals are automatically ruled out.
Language Objectives The student will ________ by using _________. Function Language Target Function Verbs: articulate describe predict summarize Language Targets: past tense verbs comparative adjectives Kate Kinsella (function) (language target) These functions are found in the Performance Indicators The student will use ________ to ____________. (function) (language target)
Sample Language Objectives
Students will describe a character’s emotions using precise adjectives .
Students will use precise adjectives to describe a character’s emotions .
Students will defend a position using present tense persuasive verbs .
Students will use present tense persuasive verbs to defend a position.
The time allocation helps to identify the area of explicit instruction, and the Performance Indicators drive instruction for that hour.
While teachers may use strategies that incorporate more than one language modality during a lesson, the outcome is based on the Performance Indicator.
WHAT is driving your instruction?
WHAT is driving your instruction? Scenario: I am teaching during my Oral English/Conversation and Vocabulary time allocation and I am using the Listening/Speaking Domain (Stage II), Standard #2, Delivery of Oral Communication Concept, Performance Indicator B-5…
Concept Performance Indicator Standard Stem Take a look at this performance indicator… May the student read the question? Yes! But what is driving the instruction? May the student write the question? Listening & Speaking (Delivery of Oral Communications)
This is an example of a possible language objective . During the Oral English/ Conversation and Vocabulary time allocation, students will work with a partner to ask and respond to Yes/No questions in the present tense using sentence frames. Students will work with a partner to ask and respond to Yes/No questions in the present tense using sentence frames.
Identify the language objective
The student will ask and respond to social and academic questions.
The student express orally his or her own thinking and ideas.
The student will ask and respond to academic questions by orally producing sentences in the present tense.
No, this is the standard, not down to the PI level. Also, this is only the function. No, this is only the function. Yes, this is the function (performance indicator) and a language target.
ELD [ELP standard/Language Objective] is the driver and ACADEMIC CONTENT is the vehicle. (What does this mean?)
“ Classroom materials used in an ELD class may reflect content from a variety of academic disciplines .
Classroom materials must be appropriate for the students’ level of English language proficiency.
Selection of content materials must be based on the materials’ effectiveness in facilitating and promoting the specific English language objective(s) of the class.
Such materials must predominantly feature specific language constructions that align with the English language objectives based on the ELL Proficiency Standards and the DSI.” (SEI Models, September 13, 2007)
ELD and Content - The lesson objective is ELD
Strategies and Methodologies
Supporting or scaffolding student language development to promote success
Interactive lessons with hands-on activities and cooperative learning
Always establish the language objective
ALWAYS use the 50/50 Rule
Teacher speaks 50%
Student speaks 50%
ALWAYS push students to their productive discomfort level
ALWAYS have students respond in complete sentences
ALWAYS remember the teacher does nothing students can do themselves
Super SEI Strategies
Four Picture Story/Process Re-Tell
What We Know
Verb Tense Study
This or That
Single Picture Text Webbing
Academic Content with Language as the Driver
ELPS II-L-1(V):LI-6 It falls on trees and houses. It is falling on trees and houses.
ELPS II-LS-2:B-7 What is made from water in the air? A is made from water in the air. snowflake B-7: responding to academic questions using key words and phrases.
ELPS II-R-4:B-7 B-7: identifying the topic/main idea and key details from text heard or read, using sentence frames.
ELPS II-W-3:B-1: B-1: generating ideas through class discussion and guided writing to record ideas ( e.g., graphic organizers, etc .) with instructional support.
For example a teacher could (using ELPS):
front load vocabulary
have the students listen and speak
select a reading selection using the vocabulary
teach a grammar lesson relevant to the information used in reading
have students write about it
Interdependent and Explicit Within the Four Hours Oral English/ Conversation Vocabulary Grammar Reading Writing
Planning a Lesson with the Listening and Speaking Domain
Listening and Speaking Standards Find the L/S domain Put your finger on the first standard Identify the second standard and point to it Slide your finger across the proficiency levels from left to right Find a High Intermediate column and slide your finger down along the PIs Remember, the High Intermediate is the skill that students will need to be able to perform—scaffold back from there
Plan a Lesson with LS Standards Template for a sample ELD lessontake a look at it. You have a double sided copy of this; circle the time allocation that you would select if you use L/S standards. Locate the section to write out your lesson Put a checkmark by the section “Language Objective” Put a star by the section “ELP Standard(s)/ Performance Indicator(s):”
Here is an area designated for a PUSH activity
SEI SUPER STRATEGY
So what does PUSH! Look like?
Tell me another way to say that using our grammar rules.
Tell me another way to write that.
What other word can we use here?
How is this word spelled?
Where we can find that information on the Grammar Wall?
Please say that in a complete sentence.
Give me two reasons for your answer.
What grammar rule did you apply?
Push students to their productive discomfort level.
Locate a performance indicator in the Listening and Speaking Domain.
Individually or with a partner(s) create a code.
Develop a Language Objective (refer to slide 29)
Design a sample lesson in the “Lesson” section
Develop a “PUSH” Activity.
The lesson for the ELL in the mainstream classroom comes from the ELP Standards/Performance Indicators that come from Attachment A. (LOOK at this column ELP Standards and Performance Indicator to be Covered)
