ELD/ELA Matrices for California

The following matrices show the correlation between state English Language Development (ELD) and English Language Arts (ELA) standards within the Hands-On English program, as certified by the California Department of Education. Note that the only items checked in the matrices are those items where a definite correlation of specific ELD and ELA standards can be cited in the materials. The Hands-On English program addresses many additional objectives that are not checked.

In addition, Hands-On English has passed a Legal and Social Compliance review by the California Department of Education and is eligible for purchase with Proposition 20 Lottery Funds or IMFRP funds. These funds are designated for purchase of supplementary instructional materials.

Please be sure to look at the cover sheet to get an overview of the program.

The following pages are legal-size sheets as PDF files in the Adobe® Reader® format.  If you cannot open the sample pages, you will need to download the reader file using the button below.
