ELL Exploring New Curriculum

ELL Department Recommends Edge

This is an exciting time for the Chelmsford ELL Department! Because of the adoption of both the WIDA standards for English language development and the Common Core standards, we have the opportunity to universally design a new standards-based curriculum for our students. After reviewing several programs, our department recommends the purchase of the Hampton-Brown Edge program for our high school ELLs.
This core Reading/Language Arts program prepares ELL students for success on exit exams and moves them to graduation and a promising future. We hope to adopt this program for implementation during the 2014-2015 school year. To learn more about the Edge program, click here.
