This presentation examines parallels between Common Core English/Spanish Language Arts Standards, California ELD/SLD Standards, and the Mexico National Reading Program. We examine how a theoretical framework emphasizing students’ communicative competence is articulated in Mexico and the U.S. We provide instructional examples in Mexican classrooms that promote collaborative student learning, from a mixed method research study. We then present purposeful communicative tasks which support language development and content learning in bilingual classrooms, using online access to MoraModules.
