Amphitheater Public Schools English Language Acquisition Department
All instruction in the ELD program is in English and incorporates the skill areas of listening, speaking, reading, grammar, and writing. The curriculum in all Structured English Immersion (SEI) courses is aligned with the Arizona English Language Learner Proficiency Standards and correlates to the AZ College and Career Ready Standards.
Enrollment and placement in the program is based on the student's performance on the AZ English Language Learner Assessment (AZELLA). The test is grade appropriate and assess each student's range of language skills. Students enter the ELD program at one of three levels; Pre-Emergent/Emergent, Basic, and Intermediate.
I will be working with students at Coronado K-8 and will provide instruction through the development of Individual Language Learner Plans (ILLPs) created and implemented with the collaboration of their classroom teachers. I'm looking forward to a wonderful new school year!
