Common Core for ELLs: Classroom Videos
These classroom video modules showcase several approaches of Common Core-aligned instruction with English language learners (ELLs). The videos feature educators from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Poughkeepsie, New York, who worked in collaboration with Dr. Diane August to implement the new standards with their ELL students. The videos highlight specific Common Core standards being met, as well as research-based ELL strategies. Each video module includes:
a video of a lesson;
a written summary of the lesson;
the Common Core State Standards addressed in the lesson;
a link to lesson plans;
related ELL strategies and resources;
video(s) of the teacher’s reflections;
video(s) from the experts (e.g., district leaders, researchers); and
comments from viewers.
According to the Colorin Colorado website, the videos can be used for self-paced professional development for individual teachers or professional learning groups.
