I would like to read more information on how the Common Core relates to ELL frameworks. Can anyone recommend any websites or readings?

Wida Consortium (www dot wida.us) did a study in 2007 that discusses the alignment of the CCSS with their standards. Coloring Colorado has some information too. I love how the CCSS incorporates the four domains. Makes planning and meeting the standards very clear.

do you just take one standard at a time when you plan or do you work with what they are doing in the classroom?

I work with what the students are learning in their "regular" classes, however, I always incorporate something from each of the four domains in every lesson. I keep a check list of the ELA and ELL standards covered and make sure to hit on those that aren't being covered as deeply. While my focus is ELA, I often integrate what the students are learning in science, history or math into my lessons.

I go to four different schools and the teachers are now using the reading workshop model. It seems each teacher is doing something different in their class. It you could give me some pointer that would help. When they had s reading series it was much easier to work with the teachers.

Do you have common planning time with the teachers? If you don't perhaps the teachers could email you a summary of their lesson plan and include the standard(s) and learning target they are focusing on. If you are able to pull students, you could create your lessons using their plans as your springboard, being sure to cover the four domains and any scaffolding needed and going more into the learning target. If you are on a consultative model, you can suggest the scaffolding and ways to include the four domains into each teacher's lesson.

Here's a document you could use to help with collaboration or even just your planning: http://uteach.utexas.edu/sites/defau...ategiesELL.pdf It's from 2005, but helps me keep track of my thoughts as I analyze the needs of my students. I take the teacher's plan and add to it by determining what strategies would best support the lesson and learning target.

Cow Pie- Thanksfor the document and your thoughts. I do pull out and if each teacher is on something diffferent it would be hard to plan. Do you have a certain material or books that you use.

I mostly use the texts or materials the teachers are using. I also use articles from the internet. I use sites like dogonews, which often has a video and text support, and past articles/lessons from Scope magazine (Scholastic) and National Geographic Extreme Explorer. It just depends on what the kids are working on. I try to keep it interesting.

I've been at the mid-school 7th/8th grade level for 5 years. I used to teach PreK-12 as an itinerant teacher. Scholastic and National Geographic have lower level magazines available. For my younger kiddos I generally used printable books I found online. For my PreK-1st kiddos, I often centered my lessons around food, working on social skills such as politely asking for more and naming new foods.
I recently found Readingbear.com and have been using it with a 7th grader. It is a free phonics program designed for younger students, but I like it because it has video and gives multiple meanings of words.

Thoughts on k-2

Our district uses the Scott foresman Reading street curriculum. It is awesome because at the back of the teachers manual is a section on differentiation. As an itinerant teacher it is soon helpful!

A lot of it depends on the levels of your students. If they are new to country you will or should be helping with the school acclimatization process as well as survival words/phrases. The great thing is kids are sponges. Just keep us posted and don't be afraid to ask questions!

Good luck!
