NC English Language Development
The North Carolina English Language Development Standards Course of Study (NC ELD SCOS) serve as the framework that guides each Public School Unit (PSU) in the development of the curriculum and instruction of their multilingual learners (MLs). These standards are not intended to be curriculum, nor do they indicate the whole of the curriculum to be written by a PSU. The NC ELD SCOS, together with cross-disciplinary academic content standards and disciplinary practices, define the language multilingual learners need as they move toward college, career, and civic readiness. The use of the ELD SCOS should be complemented by a well-developed, content-rich curriculum, and effective pedagogical approaches within an equitable educational program for multilingual learners (WIDA 2020).
