COURSE DESCRIPTION: ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT 2
In ELD 2, students will develop listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills that enable them to move up to ELD 3 and standard English language arts instruction. The course is part of a sequence of courses designed to move students who are new to English into regular English language arts instruction within a two to three-year period. While our curriculum includes the High Point Program, be prepared to engage in supplemental readings and essay tasks that present a more nuanced and targeted approach to learning language skills and composition strategies. Students who enroll mid-semester or who do not master course standards may not have had adequate time or exposure needed to gain English proficiency. They may therefore repeat the course the next semester. A student should not repeat this course more than once unless it is determined that appropriate academic intervention is needed for the student to catch up.
