Effective instruction includes learning targets/objectives that align with both academic and English language proficiency standards. By aligning learning/targets with both sets of standards, teachers will best be able to meet the language and content needs of their students.

Using the Arizona ELP standards and the Arizona English Language Arts (ELA) Standards, select the stage or grade level for a group of K-8 ELLs at the basic English proficiency level.

Complete the “Learning Target/Objective Alignment Template,” by creating a learning target/objective that aligns with ELP and ELA standards for each of the domains: Listening and Speaking, Reading, Writing, and Language.
