2015 Dual Language Learners Learning Table

An English language development (ELD) approach recognizes the benefits of the strategic use and continued development of the home language to the acquisition of English during the preschool years. A new BUILD report that scanned early learning and development standards for preschool-aged children in 23 states showed that many states have moved toward this approach. Yet, the report also revealed that more work needs to be done to align an ELD approach within the components of the early learning system (e.g. assessment, workforce competencies, instructional guidance, etc.) in order to drive high quality services that will improve outcomes for young DLLs and their families.

In this Learning Table, state teams had an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the English Language Development approach, and work together to examine challenges and plan strategies to strengthen a particular component of their system.
