EVENTS

PRIME V2 SealThe WIDA Protocol for Review of Instructional Materials for ELLs (WIDA PRIME) was developed by WIDA as a tool to assist publishers and educators in examining the presence of key components of the WIDA Standards Framework in their materials. This updated edition offers a better explanation of how language development standards work with college and career readiness standards and other academic content standards for educators of English language learners (ELLs) and students being instructed in Spanish.

The correlation process identifies how the components of the 2012 Amplification of the English Language Development Standards, Kindergarten through Grade 12 and the Spanish Language Development (SLD) Standards are represented in the instructional materials. These materials vary from core or supplemental texts and websites to software (e.g., apps, computer programs). WIDA PRIME is not an evaluative tool that judges the effectiveness of published materials using the WIDA Language Development Standards.

Those who complete WIDA PRIME V2 Trainings become Trained Correlators. This may be renewed on an annual basis. Contact WCEPS for pricing details at store@wceps.org or 877-272-5593.


New in This Edition

WIDA PRIME has expanded to include:

  • WIDA Standards Framework
  • English and Spanish Language Development Standards
  • Relevance for both US domestic and international audiences
  • Applicability to digital product design features

Primary Purposes

  • To assist educators in making informed decisions on the selection of instructional materials for language education programs.
  • To inform publishers and correlators on the aspects of the WIDA Standards Framework and its applicability to the development of instructional materials.

Primary Audience

  • District administrators, instructional coaches, and teacher educators responsible for the selection of instructional materials inclusive of language learners
  • Publishers and correlators responsible for ensuring their instructional materials address language development.

WIDA welcomes the opportunity to work with both publishers and educators. WIDA realizes that it has a unique perspective in its conceptualization of language development standards and their use. It is our hope that in using this inventory, publishers and educators will gain a keener insight into the facets involved in the language development of language learners, both in the US and internationally, as they pertain to products.
