A new resource is available from the Mid-Atlantic Equity Center (MAEC) and can be downloaded from their website. The Normas para la enseñanza de las artes del lenguaje en español is a collaboration of MAEC and the Bilingual Education Office of the District of Columbia Public Schools. According to the website, "The Normas are aligned to the Common Core Standards. They take into account the linguistic differences between the Spanish and English languages, and the methodological differences in Spanish and English literacy instruction and traditional Spanish literacy learning expectations. Most importantly, they delineate expectations for Spanish literacy development."
