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 in this form.

Please contact Ben Wolcott, ELPA Specialist, with questions about ELPA testing.

Please contact Susy Mekarski and Kim Miller, Title III Specialists, with questions about English language proficiency instruction and Title III requirements.
