12 Key Practices Framework

This downloadable pdf file includes the Wagner & King (2010) Key Practice 1 framework that structures their book. The framework is divided into four parts: 1) Shared Practices at the District, School, and Classroom Levels; 2) Common Classroom Practices for All ELL Educators; 3) Core Instructional Practices of Every Program for ELLs; and 4) Organizing the Key Practices into Effective Program Configurations. The 12 Key Practices checklist is aligned with this framework.

Ch.02 Survey: Fundamental Language Issues

Teachers, coaches, and administrators can use this survey from the end of Chapter 2 (Valdés et al) to investigate fundamental language issues surrounding CCSS and ELLs/emergent bilinguals at their school/district/organization. The survey asks educators to focus on different educators' perspectives on language, language acquisition, and language variation in our context.

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.

The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
