Ch.04 Survey: Policy, Leadership, and Advocacy

Teachers, coaches, and administrators can use this survey from the end of Chapter 4 (Valdés et al) to investigate the policy, leadership, and advocacy context surrounding CCSS and ELLs/emergent bilinguals at their school/district/organization. The survey asks educators to focus on a) the existence of a language policy regarding ELLs/EBs at the local level, b) educators' knowledge about what that language policy says about programs and practices for ELLs/EBs, and c) whether that language policy was used to guide CCSS implementation.

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.

Ch.06 Survey: Classroom Instruction and Assessment

Use this survey to focus your observations of classes that serve ELLs (general education, ESL, bilingual). Use a plus sign (+) when you have observed exemplary practice in this area, a check mark when you have observed evidence of this practice, and a minus sign (-) when you have found no evidence of this practice. Jot down evidence of the practice that you observed. Use the data that you collect on this survey to focus conversations with teachers and to guide decisions about professional development. Review your observations and evidence to identify strengths of classroom instruction and assessment for ELLs at your school, future possibilities you can see, and concrete action steps you can take. Feel free to revise the survey as necessary to focus your observations on areas of concern (e.g., particular strategies that teachers are targeting in professional development).
