WIDA ELD Standards, 2020 Edition: Updates and learning opportunities
WIDA is excited to announce that the WIDA English Language Development Standards, 2020 Edition will be released in early winter, 2020-2021.
Earlier this year, due to the impact of COVID-19 on schools and communities around the world, WIDA collaborated with state education agencies to determine a new release date for the 2020 Edition. Upon release, the WIDA ELD Standards, 2020 Edition will be available as a downloadable PDF document on the WIDA Store.
The 2020 Edition of the WIDA ELD Standards builds on ideas and concepts from existing resources and prior editions. This edition addresses the latest theories, policies and practices and includes several new features such as clear language expectations, and materials that are specific to each grade-level cluster (K, 1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-8, 9-12).
