      Kimberly-

      The new WIDA standards align nicely to the Common Core, as there is an emphasis on all four language domains, and the CCSS for ELA do a nice job of solidifying the core competencies in each domain. Although there are not lessons on ELL specifically on UDL Exchange, it's an awesome resource where lessons are universally designed, and therefore designed with all learners in mind. There are many ELA, science, and social studies lessons you could definitely use with ELL students, as there are notes on variability and all lessons have multiple means of representation (words, audio, visuals) which will help your students with language development.

      Hope this helps.
