Academic Language Summary Handouts

New Resource!!! SCALE has created a set of academic language resources for the majority of edTPA subject areas. These handouts summarize the concept of academic language within the context of edTPA and provide subject-specific examples of language functions, demands, and supports. We encourage faculty/programs to use and share this go-to resource when discussing the role of academic language in edTPA with candidates.

The “Top 10 edTPA Resources” document is now available in the Resource Library. This summary document provides a consolidated list of links to SCALE’s most important edTPA resources for faculty/programs and candidates. This list may be especially beneficial for those who are new to edTPA and gathering materials to familiarize themselves with the assessment.  We also recommend that programs/states link to this resource within any online descriptions of edTPA within their state.
