Academic language development and achievement of language learners is best supported when it is couched within a cohesive standards-referenced system. At WIDA, the heart of the system is an assets-based approach to planning, instruction, assessment, and reflection. In identifying key uses of academic language (discuss, argue, recount, explain), teachers can recognize what learners can do as they develop disciplinary language practices. In this session, participants will explore a set of tools revolving around  key uses of academic language, and consider how they can be applied to classrooms in international schools.
