WIDA is proud to announce the release of a new webinar series designed specifically for families of English language learners (ELLs).
An Introduction to English Standards and Assessments for Parents is a three-part webinar series designed specifically for parents, or families, of ELLs in grades K-12. The series is available in English and Spanish on the WIDA website (www.wida.us). Each webinar in the series is organized around three frequently asked questions by parents, including:
What does it mean to be an English language learner?
How is my child expected to use language in school?
What does the ACCESS for ELLs Parent/Guardian Score Report tell me?
Families are critical stakeholders within the comprehensive system of standards and assessments of WIDA, and as such, have the right to know and understand how their child is progressing in his or her English language development. Educators are encouraged to share these resources with families throughout the year and in a variety of ways.
