ELD Linguistic Star

The ELD Linguistic Star is a collection of strategies the district received from Clark Consulting.  The focus is on making English language instruction explicit for students in all domains: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.  These strategies are organized around the 5 point star of language elements: phonology, morphology, syntax, lexicon, and semantics.  Participants will get hands-on practice using Star Strategies in each session and then try one or more in their classrooms, followed by a short reflection.  Clear directions to using the strategies and supporting resources are provided.
