ELD Storyline

ELD Storyline Frieze Why is Storyline good for English Language Development (ELD)? 

Storyline creates a rich, engaging context for authentic language learning and practice. It naturally includes the four domains of language: reading, writing, listening and speaking. Each Storyline is based on a story. Stories are something that everyone can relate to, since all cultures have a narrative genre. Students in the ELD classroom, who represent diverse cultures/languages, are united in their learning through stories, and each student is able to participate in the learning process.
