Welcome to Homestead High School’s ELD program page!  Our ELD program offers special instruction for students learning English as a second language.  Our curriculum is geared towards the new ELD Standards, which are based on the Common Core Standards. 

 

The ELD program prepares students with an academic foundation that contributes to lasting student achievement.  ELD teachers use various second language acquisition strategies to develop English vocabulary and comprehension skills.  Instruction in the ELD classroom is conducted in English.  ELD students have access to the same grade level core curriculum and textbooks that mainstream students receive.  ELD students participate in all of the same school activities as their grade level peers in the regular program.

 

Our ELD 1 and ELD 2 students participate in a program called The Ambassadors Program, which helps EL students with the social aspects of high school and at the same time, helps with their communication skills.

 

The goals of the ELD program are for our English Learners to:

  • Attain English Proficiency
  • Achieve high levels in core academic subjects
  • Meet ELD Standards, which are based on the Common Core Standards
  • Understand and respect other’s cultures, traditions and values.
  • Develop a positive attitude and maintain acceptable standards of conduct and citizenship in everything that they do.

ELD Curriculum 

Homestead High School offers three levels of ELD instruction: ELD 1, 2 and 3. Each ELD class is paired with a literature based English class specifically designed for the English learner. When appropriate, ELD students also take sheltered academic content courses such as sheltered Social Studies, sheltered Science and sheltered Math courses until they are ready for mainstream content courses.

Below are examples of the schedules for a typical beginning (ELD 1), intermediate (ELD 2) and advanced (ELD 3 and above) English Learner in the ELD Program:

RECLASSIFICATION PROCESS 

When ELD students have met all the requirements of the ELD program, they will be able to be enrolled in mainstream classes. This process is called Reclassification.  Students are reclassified based upon multiple measures and include state standardized tests, such as the CELDT and GATES, teacher judgment and other measures of student performance as needed.

 

 

COMMON TERMINOLOGY

  • ELD: English Language Development

 

  • EL: English Learners

 

  • LEP: Limited English Proficient

 

  • FEP: Fluent English Proficient

 

  • CELDT: California English Language Development Test

 

  • Initial CELDT: The testing process when the child first enters the program

 

  • Annual CELDT: The testing that happens in the fall once the child is enrolled in the ELD Program for one year and has not passed the initial CELDT

 

  • Re-classified: The student has passed the required tests and changes from the status as English Learner to the Fluent English Proficient designation.

 

  • SDAIE: Specially Designed Academic instruction in English

 

  • CLAD (Cross-Cultural Language & Academic Development): Certification for a teaching credential that authorizes teachers to work with English Learners.
