WIDA ELD Standards in Action: Differentiation
English learners (ELs) need instruction that is differentiated for their diverse proficiency levels. At this
2-day workshop, participants will collaborate on how to customize instruction for ELs utilizing WIDA
tools while taking academic language into consideration. This workshop is appropriate for classroom
teachers, English language specialists, administrators, curriculum development specialists, and support
staff who are familiar with WIDA Standards.
Define what language differentiation means in the instruction and assessment of ELs
Describe how scaffolds and supports engage ELs at various levels in the language and
content of a lesson
Describe how content, product, process, and environment are taken into account for
language differentiation
Describe the relationship between proficiency level and domain in differentiation
Use scaffolds and supports to engage ELLs at various levels in the language and content
of a lesson
Apply the use of a strand of model performance indicators (MPIs) to support differentiated student
engagement addressing the same cognitive function
These workshops are designed for the participation of teachers. Participants are encouraged to attend in pairs,
an ELD Specialist and a content teacher. To accommodate as many districts as possible, teams should consist of
2-4 persons.
