This interactive workshop explores the components of the WIDA Framework for Language Development Standards with a focus on academic language. Participants engage in hands-on activities that explore the WIDA Can Do philosophy, examine academic language, and consider the sociocultural factors that influence language use. This workshop provides foundational awareness of the WIDA Framework and has been designed for any educators that work with English Language Learners.

Objectives:
At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to

  • Describe the components of the WIDA Framework for Language Development Standards
  • Recognize the sociocultural factors that influence language use
  • Identify the three dimensions of academic language
  • Use the WIDA Performance Definitions to identify language expectations of instructional tasks
  • Explain the components of the WIDA Standards Matrices
  • Identify the elements of a Model Performance Indicator

*We have found this audience size to be the most effective for facilitator-participant interaction. If you are considering additional participants, this must be discussed and approved with WIDA in advance as it may change the number of facilitators required for the event.
