Sheltered instruction and English language development: Defining ELD
from By: Erick Herrmann
From May 8:
In Part 1 of this series, two popular models of sheltered instruction were explored: Project GLAD and the SIOP Model. Most educators agree that it is important to meet the needs of English learners in the classroom through sheltered instruction and differentiation, but there is sometimes confusion on explicit English language development: what it is, what should be taught in ELD and when ELD should be taught. In this article, English language development will be explored in more depth.
