This New York State Common Core Learning Standards (NYS CCLS) Module is an in depth study of animals and their habitats. The thematic nature of the unit allows students and teacher to make meaningful connections between content areas and literacy.
The L.I. RBE-RN’s adaptation of this portion of the Module has similar components but approaches the topics covered through instructional methodologies and strategies appropriate for English Language Learners (ELLs). It aligns not only the grade level standards from the NYS CCLS but incorporates linguistic demands from the Bilingual Common Core Initiative (BCCI) Progressions.
A Co-Teaching Planning Template is also available below for use by teachers who may choose to utilize this information in Integrated ENL instruction.
