ELPA21 English Learner Educator Toolkit: Newcomer Supplement Now Available (REPEAT)
In 2021-22, ELPA21 released the
ELPA21 English Learner Educator Toolkit. This resource (developed by English language development educators across the consortium, including educators from Oregon) included information, resources, and assessment tools for use with students who have English learner (EL) status. Educators in Oregon could download a free copy of the toolkit during the 2021-22 school year.
ELPA21 has now released a supplement to this toolkit, focusing on “Newcomer” students with EL status. While some elements of this supplement can be used independently, it is designed to work best in tandem with the base EL Toolkit. This supplement is
free to Oregon educators during the 2022-23 school year, after which time it will be available for purchase in the
NABE web store, alongside other ELPA21 products, such the base ELPA21 EL Toolkit and the English Learners Classroom Poster. Practitioners can download the free
ELPA21 English Learner Educator Toolkit: Newcomer Supplement by entering their information
