New Hampshire English Language Proficiency Standards


Alignments with Previous NH GLE/GSE Standards | WIDA English Language Development Standards and the Common Core State Standards

New Hampshire is a member of the WIDA (World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment) Consortium. In 2004, the New Hampshire State Board of Education adopted the WIDA English language proficiency standards. The WIDA standards provide educators of ELLs with a curriculum and assessment planning tool for content area objectives.

With funding from a UNH professional development grant, New Hampshire ESOL and mainstream teachers have worked for the last five years on aligning the English Language Proficiency Standards with New Hampshire’s Content Standards. Under the direction of Dr. Suzanne Irujo, this professional learning community has worked on the alignment of standards for elementary, high school and middle school.
