A document designed for use by educational leaders and practitioners as a framework for establishing and articulating a rigorous and coherent program for serving English Language Learners (ELLs), and for evaluating the quality of instructional materials for ELLs, enabling school districts to choose materials that are best suited to accelerate achievement of grade-level standards and development of academic language and literacy for ELLs.

This framework is a tool within the Materials Alignment Toolkit, developed in partnership with Achieve, the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the Council of Great City Schools (CGCS).
