WIDA provides language development resources to those who support the academic success of multilingual learners. We offer a comprehensive, research-based system of language standards, assessments, professional learning and educator assistance. WIDA’s trusted resources are used by 41 domestic states and territories and approximately 500 international schools throughout the world.

WIDA will offer a new self-paced workshop titled Exploring the WIDA PreK-3 Essential Actions, which will introduce educators to the new WIDA PreK-3 Essential Actions.  The Essential Actions are research-informed guidelines that help educators take a language-focused approach to family and community engagement, and teaching and learning. Educators will have an opportunity to build their knowledge and understanding of the Essential Actions and to reflect on their own ideologies, practices, and settings. Access to the course will require a WIDA Secure Portal account. Search the training calendar in the PD Registry for Exploring the WIDA PreK-3 Essential Actions.
