What is the HSED for English learners?
Literacy Services of Wisconsin’s High School Equivalency Diploma for English Learners (HSED-EL) is an innovative approach to meeting the needs of adult English language learners in today’s world. Designed specifically for English learners of any language background, it provides a pathway for those in need of a high school (U.S. grades 9-12) credential to gain academic, workforce readiness, and English language skills all in one place. The state-approved PI 5.09 program is based on the Common Core State Standards and the CSSO English Language Proficiency Standards, incorporating best practices for content-based instruction in language learning environments. The program emphasizes essential English language skills such as speaking, reading, and writing in preparation for post-secondary education and the workplace. Learners are assessed on classroom-based projects-- not standardized tests-- and are provided a multi-disciplinary, holistic approach to learning that equips them with the skills needed to further their education and excel in the workforce.
