Resources for Teachers of ELLs
Welcome to the Teachers of ELLs Resource Page!
I am constantly adding resources so please check back often. Also, if you come across a resource that would be helpful for educators, please email me the link at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add it to my list!
If you are a teacher in Missouri, the following links would be helpful to you as well. This is one of the places where I find out the newest information regarding ELL programs.

Although Missouri is a WIDA state, I have found Oregon's English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards very useful at explaining what ELLs are capable of at each language acquisition level at each grade level. Check them out!
