The English Language Arts/English Language Development Framework for California Public Schools: Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve (ELA/ELD Framework) breaks new ground by providing a blueprint for the implementation of two sets of interrelated standards:
• California Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy), adopted by the California State Board of Education (SBE) in August 2010 (with minor modifications adopted in 2013) (California Department of Education [CDE] 2013a)
• California English Language Development Standards (CA ELD Standards), adopted by the SBE in November 2012 (CDE 2014a)
These two sets of standards have wide-ranging importance: The ability to read, write, and communicate with competence and confidence in English across a range of personal and academic contexts expands students’ opportunities for career and college success and  for full and wise participation in a democratic society and global economy. Moreover, skill in literacy and language provides individuals with access to extraordinary and powerful literature that widens perspectives,illuminates the human experience, and deepens  nderstandings of self and others. Since literacy and language are foundational to all learning, both sets of standards are crucial to ensuring that all California students achieve content standards in every discipline.
This ELA/ELD Framework addresses English literacy and language, including reading, writing,speaking, listening, and language and the use and development of these skills across the disciplines.The CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy and the CA ELD Standards define what  students are expected to know and be able to do at each grade level1 or span and, in the case of the CA ELD Standards, the English language proficiency level. This ELA/ELD Framework guides the development of curriculum,
1 The CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy and the CA ELD Standards each include kindergarten through grade 12 standards. The kindergarten standards inform practice in transitional kindergarten classrooms. In discussions of transitional kindergarten curriculum and pedagogy  throughout this document, where the standards are being described the term “kindergarten” is used whereas where programs or learners are discussed the term “transitional kindergarten(er)” is used.
