Reading EXCERPT
WIDA Online Training Modules
“Our hope is that all teachers, not just
ESL teachers, will embed explicit
language instruction in their teaching.
The WIDA standards and the processes
described in this training are designed
to provide teachers with specific
strategies to support instruction and to
introduce resources that support
student acquisition of academic
language.”

The North Carolina
Perspective
“The final, resounding message North
Carolina sends is that we are all language
teachers. Up-to-date, standards-based, datadriven approaches to initiatives are essential
for accelerated academic language acquisition.
English learners are members of our
communities and schools, and we have
profound ethical and legal responsibilities to
ensure equity and equality for all students in
our state….North Carolina is proud of its
initiatives. We hold fast to the notion that
public K-12 education is for all. As we
continue to grow and change, we aim to hold
ourselves to the highest of state and national
standards for best-practices in English learner
education.”
(Lachance & Marino, 2012, p. 22)
