EDSE 224, LECTURE 6: Advanced Stage The Advanced Stage, or Transition, include learners who have fairly strong basic interpersonal communication skills (BICS), but who need to develop advanced linguistic competence (CALP). Such competence, according to Cummins (1991), is critical to succeed in advanced and complex academic tasks such as developing inferences from analyzing texts and synthesizing complex and longer texts, or extended texts (e.g., chapter books). Given this critical need, many second language learners do not participate in programs specifically designed for students ready to transition. Many teachers in classrooms classified as transition are not aware of the critical role they must play in bridging what could become a chasm for some learners, particularly those with disabilities. The Advanced Stages include learners beginning to work in: Construction and understanding of compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences, who can structure simple narratives and questions, but who have difficulties with complex syntax and multiple meaning words.
