Abstract

In this document, we lay out a six-part Framework of Effective Instruction for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners (“CLDL Framework”) that names key components of the teaching practice and student learning that is most central for CLD students. The framework is built around enduring understandings both for teachers and for students: what is most important for them to understand in order to be most successful in their shared endeavor.
