ELL Foundations: Level 1

The ELL Foundations: Level 1 course offers 32 multicultural reading selections in the following genres: myths and legends, biographies, poetry, short stories, and articles. Instructional materials are written at levels aligned to The Lexile® Framework for Reading, a scientific approach to reading measurement that provides a common scale for matching reader ability and text difficulty. It links your ability to read to the linguistic complexity of the selections provided. Alignment to the Lexile® Framework allows you to monitor your progress within the Lexile® scale. 


Districts who would like to access and implement these special courses for their students should contact CDLS for registration information and additional information about partnering with CDLS to set up a locally supported course.
