Common Core - Univision Leading the Way!

How cool is it that Univision is doing a series on Common Core State Standards. The Spanish language television station is devoting an hour show to help parents understand the standards and why they are great for English language learners!

From the Edweek Learning the Language blog:
This past weekend, AĆ­da Walqui, an expert on English-language learners who is the director of teacher professional-development programs for WestEd, was the guest. She had nearly an hour on the program to explain why she thinks the standards present an important opportunity for improving educational outcomes for Latino students and for students who are English-language learners.
