The California English Language Development Standards describe the reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills that English learners need in order to access, engage with, and achieve in grade-level academic content for kindergarten through grade 12. The standards are aligned with the California Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. Three chapters are devoted to professional development so that educators understand the pedagogical shifts and how the standards should be used for instruction. A glossary of key terms is included.
