Capstone Project Title
Prior to the 2020 WIDA Standards Framework, English language development instruction has taken many forms; however, this newest framework outlined the need for language to be taught in content instead of isolation. Based on the new standards the question, How can the 6th grade English language arts curriculum be improved to incorporate the WIDA 2020 standards in order to better support ELL students? emerged. The standards coupled with various scholars’ research identified in this project, made it clear that the best language instruction is taught in explicit, direct, and authentic ways. Based on these findings, this capstone identifies intentional instructional strategies, supports, and pedagogies that enhance English language development while incorporating content-specific standards.
