TDLS 2023 - EL Civics Exchange: Accessible Instructional Materials for English Learners


The California EL Civics Exchange, a joint project between CASAS and OTAN funded by the California Department of Education, is a new repository for original EL Civics instructional materials created by California WIOA, Title II: AEFLA/EL Civics agencies. These materials, organized by competency area, can be used to teach EL Civics content to English language learners as part of the 30 hours of instruction required in California before administering an EL Civics Assessment (COAAP). Materials are licensed by Creative Commons nomenclature allowing your agency to use the materials according to the Creative Commons requirements. This presentation introduces participants to the organization of the EL Civics Exchange and gives information on how an agency can access and submit materials, including the requirements for acceptable materials. Presenters answer participant questions about the Exchange.
