English Language Art_English Language Proficiency Alignment:  In May 2017, the Nebraska Department of Education conducted a state-wide standards alignment of the NE English Language Art (ELA) and NE English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards.  This process led to a document of alignment materials and resources for ELA teachers in all grades understand English language proficiency levels and determine appropriate supports for learners at all levels.   The first document contains all the information about the alignment process, information about supporting English Learners in the content classroom, and proficiency levels of ELs.  Following the document are sample lessons that include supports for English Learners.  Get the entire document by clicking on  NDE ELA_ELP Alignment Document.
