Systematic ELD is a dedicated instructional block that is driven by students’ assessed English proficiency levels. The goal is to move students from one proficiency level to the next. Systematic ELD builds a solid foundation in English by teaching language that English learners:


• are not likely to learn outside of school or efficiently pick up on their own, 


• will not explicitly learn in other subject areas,


• and need to use for effective academic learning, classroom participation, and real life purposes. 


The Common Core and other content standards assume native English proficiency. Systematic ELD provides a time for English learners to learn and practice language they need in order to navigate rigorous content instruction and a myriad of adult and peer interactions, such as discussions and collaborative work.
