Resources Supporting Implementation of the ELA/ELD FrameworkTop of Page

  • Chart of ELA/ELD Framework Snapshots and Vignettes (PDF; New Jul-2015)
    Brief snapshots and longer vignettes are included throughout the ELA/ELD Framework to provide examples of instruction. This chart lists all the snapshots and vignettes, by chapter, and includes the grade level, page number(s), and indicates the different content areas each snapshot and vignette addresses. (Note: In the items column, “S” stands for a snapshot, and “V” represents vignettes.) 
    • ELA/ELD Framework Snapshots (PDF; 2MB; New Jul-2015)
      The snapshots in chapters 3–7 provide examples of instructional strategies for transitional kindergarten through grades eleven and twelve in ELA, ELD, and other content areas. In chapters 8–11, the snapshots are examples of possible scenarios for multiple grade levels in other systems of support, such as assessment, access and equity, or 21st century learning. All snapshots for the ELA/ELD framework, chapters 3–11, are compiled into this document.
    • ELA/ELD Framework Vignettes: Chapters 3–7 (PDF; 2MB; New Jul-2015)
      Two vignettes are provided for each grade level (for TK to grade 8) and grade span (grades 9–10 and 11–12). These vignettes offer more in-depth examples of classroom practices, including connections to other disciplines and scaffolding for modifications for all students, including instruction for integrated and designated ELD. All vignettes, by chapter and grade-level, for chapters 3–7 are compiled into this document. 
    • ELA/ELD Framework Vignettes Summary Sheet | PDF
      List developed by the San Joaquin County Office of Education of all the vignettes and their title/content by grade level. Each grade-level section has a pair of vignettes: an ELA/Literacy with integrated ELD vignette and a companion designed ELD vignette. 
  • Chart of ELA/ELD Framework Figures (PDF; New Jul-2015)
    A variety of figures (including charts, definitions, descriptions, explanations) are included throughout the ELA/ELD Framework to provide more detailed support for implementation and instruction. This chart lists all the figures, by chapter, with figure titles and page number (s).
    • ELA/ELD Figures: Introduction – Chapter 2 (PDF; 8MB; New Jul-2015)
      All figures (includes charts, diagrams, definitions, descriptions, explanations) for the introduction and chapters 1 and 2 are compiled into this document. 
    • ELA/ELD Figures: Chapter 3–7 (PDF; 5MB; New Jul-2015)
      All figures (includes charts, diagrams, definitions, descriptions, explanations) for the grade-level chapters 3–7 are compiled, by chapter, into this document.

      All figures (includes charts, diagrams, definitions, descriptions, explanations) for systems of support, such as assessment, access and equity, and 21st century learning are compiled, by chapter, into this document. 
Close Reading Exemplars
A series of reading and writing exemplars that model how teachers can support their students as they undergo the kind of careful reading the CCSS require.

Dr. Douglas Fisher - Close Reading Video
In this 2 minute SchoolTube video, Dr. Fisher discusses close reading and how it relates to the CCSS for English Language Arts. There are also links to other videos related to CCSS.
 
Achieve the Core - Text Complexity
Reading complex text is one of the most important factors in preparing students for college and career. The CCSS emphasizes increasing the complexity of texts students read as a key element in improving reading comprehension. This link provides teachers with resources to better understand text complexity. These tools allow educators to assess the quantitative and qualitative features of text complexity.
