    Survey: Your State's EL Requirements
    By LindaR

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Here in CA we are required to provide explicit ELD instruction for 45 minutes per day (intermediate grades) for those students identified as EL. Last year, I pulled 5 EL students for small group instruction for 45 minutes straight each day, while the rest of my class had to work independently. We just finished up with the CELDT test and I was told that I have 4 kids this year.

    I'm curious as to what the requirements are for other states. I've had many "political" discussions regarding this issue...I'm surprised that I haven't heard of parents of English proficient kids complaining that their child is basically being ignored each day for 45 minutes.
