RUSD ELD Portfolio

ELD Portfolio Update to Site Principals March 2014.pdf

In 2012-2013, a team of RUSD teachers and administrators began developing a new tool to progress monitor language development for English learners. The process included reviewing the new ELD standards, developing writing and speaking rubrics, and identifying a portfolio template. The rubrics are posted below. You can see detailed background on the work here and here. Starting 2014-2015 the ELD portfolio was fully implemented in ELD 1-3 classes districtwide in grades 7-12, while a small group of elementary teachers continued to implement at the K-6 levels. During the 2016-2017 school year, we will work with targeted elementary sites to implement the tool, including the inclusion of an electronic portfolio feature to capture and display student work samples.
