X3 - Understanding Language, Stanford University

Understanding Language aims to heighten educator awareness of the critical role that language plays in the new Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. The long-term goal of the initiative is to increase recognition that learning the language of each academic discipline is essential to learning content. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information; articulating and building on ideas; constructing explanations; engaging in argument from evidence—such language-rich performance expectations permeate the new Standards.

We provide support to teachers so that their ELs are better positioned to achieve academic success. All of our practical, hands-on professional development (whether it be face to face or online) is based on fostering ELs achievement and increasing teachers’ skills in working with these students.
