Like the classroom outlines, the ELD outlines present the episodes, key questions, activities, class organization, resources, standards, and assessment. The standards covered in an ELD Storyline differ in that they are primarily language focused.
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.
