English Language Development
Here in Columbine, equity serves as the foundation for all we do. All students bring a wealth of linguistic and cultural experiences that contribute to and support their learning in Columbine. All educators are teachers of language and impact the experience and success of emerging bilingual students. In Columbine we believe all students, educators, and families benefit from being part of a diverse learning community and that partnerships and trust between educators and families are critical to student success.
The English Language Development Standards are aligned and paired with Language Arts standards to follow a continuum of language acquisition. All langauge domains - listensing, speaking, reading, and writing - are developed through learning strategies specifice for Emerging Bilingual (EB) students.
