Alana Cayabyab

Ms. Cayabyab and colleagues will improve English Language Development (ELD) instruction at Bijou Community School and align it with the new Common Core State Standards ELD standards. Teachers will initially meet in vertical teams in which they will outline strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of current ELD practices. Thereafter, teachers will work in grade level teams to identify ELD power standards that can be incorporated and embedded into preexisting units and themes for language arts, social studies, science, and math.
