Welcome to English Language! I teach all students in grades K-6 who qualify for services, as measured by their Azella test scores. DVUSD uses the best practices as proven effective in the research of Kevin Clarke. Heidi Koski, who was trained by Kevin Clarke, trains all DVUSD EL teachers and observes them, annually. I am excited to work in an A-rated district, with internationally famous researchers. My classroom incorporates science or social studies content from all grade levels into the English grammar units of study, from our Scope and Sequence. We integrate English Language Proficiency Standards into every lesson, and use Methodologies from our trainings.
I teach and assess a Verb Tense Study, a Syntax Surgery, and a Four Picture Story Frame, every month, for my PDSA Learning Cycles.
