We partnered with the National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE) to create a series of educational resources designed for and by K-12 educators.
Differentiating for English Learners Poster
This 24 x 36 inch printed poster is quickly becoming EL educators’ favorite planning tool. It’s an essential resource for educators working with ELs, organized by domain and student proficiency level. The poster provides instructional strategies and assessment scaffolds for planning, and also has a QR code for additional in-depth strategic resources.
EL Educator Toolkit
ELPA21 partnered directly with educators nationwide to uncover the most immediate needs of educators working with English learners (ELs). Alongside leading researchers and EL educators, ELPA21 developed a set of resources in this toolkit to support high-quality, data-informed instruction and assessment for ELs.
Differentiating Instruction for EL/MLs Flipbook
The Differentiating Instruction for EL/MLs Flipbook is an evergreen resource containing eight high-leverage strategies scaffolded for low, medium, and high language proficiency levels that are designed for immediate application. It also includes access to a free digital download for refillable strategy templates. Educators will gain access to strategies modeled through a variety of targeted language skills, content area examples, design variations, and assessment considerations.

The Formative Assessment Foldable is a practical resource that offers formative assessment strategies throughout a formative assessment cycle. This resource demonstrates the critical components of formative assessment and ideas for implementation for EL/ML students at a variety of proficiency levels.

The Differentiating for English/Multilingual Learners Poster helps identify student performance in all four language domains and provides strategies for scaffolding instruction and scaffolding assessment, meeting EL/ML learners where they are, and strategically moving them towards full language proficiency.
English/Multilingual Learner Educator Toolkit
The English/Multilingual Learner Educator Toolkit is a foundational resource designed to address a variety of EL/ML challenges in language and content area classroom settings. The resources included in this digital download support high-quality, data-informed instruction and assessment for EL/ML students.
