Our system to write content and language objectives is a comprehensive but simple system that takes into consideration TEKS, ELPS, levels of taxonomy, student chosen products, language proficiency, and linguistic accommodations. When teachers learn how to present these objectives in a student-centered manner and with academic language terms that yield high levels of comprehension, the result is simply: mastery of objectives. Talk to us about scheduling an overview of how we can help your district move into the next level of language objectives implementation.
