English Language Develepment

English Language Development (ELD) is a system of English language instruction for students who speak English as a foreign language and have only been in the U.S. for a limited number of years. The intent of the ELD courses is to provide instruction in English at just above the student’s English proficiency level with the aim of having students progress through the ELD levels to acquire the English language skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking necessary to prepare them for more rigorous work in non-sheltered classes.

In addition to linguistic skills, ELD classes provide the students an entry-level knowledge of how an American high school operates culturally including Project Based Learning (PBL) and the predominant use of technology at American Canyon High School.
