This tool is intended to support teachers and students to assess and reflect on students’ academic oral language production and writing progress over the course of a unit. It focuses teachers’ attention on the dimensions of academic language development and allows the documenting of progress throughout a unit. This assessment tool should be used with several activities in a unit so students have opportunities to write for different audiences and purposes and to interact with each other and the teacher in multiple ways. Teacher modeling, small group work, pair-share-think-share activities, and class presentations are effective strategies to collect assessment information.
