Grade 5 ELA Module 3A, Unit 1, Lesson 1 and 2 – Lesson Exemplar for ELLs/MLLs

Teacher helping student at desk

This is the first and second lesson in Unit 1. As noted in the introduction, AIR provides scaffolding differentiated for ELL/MLL students at the entering (EN), emerging (EM), transitioning (TR), and expanding (EX) levels of English language proficiency in this prototype. We indicate the level(s) for which the scaffolds are appropriate in brackets (e.g., [EN]). Where [ALL] is indicated, it means that the scaffold is intended for all levels of students. Scaffolds are gradually reduced as student become more proficient in English.
