In ELD, students will maximize their capacity to engage successfully in academic studies taught in English.

Topics will emphasize listening and speaking to build reading and writing and also explicitly teach vocabulary and grammar.

I love using technology to support language learning, so expect to use Chromebooks and/or iPads several times throughout the year.


Pendleton is a Google for Education user so students will learn how to use Google tools to maximize learning! There are also tons of other really great tools out there that we will explore this year. Above all, we will discover how to be responsible digital citizens!

All of this technology has a purpose - to support language arts, math, science, and social studies.
