Ch.01 Survey: Terrain and Landscape

Teachers, coaches, and administrators can use this tool from the end of Chapter 1 (Valdés et al) to survey the terrain and landscape surrounding CCSS and ELLs/emergent bilinguals at their school/district/organization. The survey asks educators to focus on a) perspectives on the CCSS, b) perspectives on change, c) labeling emergent bilinguals/ELLs, and d) how ELLs/EBs needs are currently addressed relative to CCSS.

After individuals complete their surveys, leadership teams are encouraged to discuss survey responses, and identify one to three issues that stand out as challenges in their context. Then team members are asked to identify one to three action steps they can take to address the challenges they identify. As questions arise, educators are encouraged to turn to expert responses in the chapter for guidance.
