Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners: The SIOP Model with DVD Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most influential books in the field in years!

 

Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners: The SIOP® Model presents a coherent, specific, field-tested model of sheltered instruction that specifies the features of a high quality sheltered lesson that teaches content material to English language learners.

 

For twelve years, educators have turned to Jana Echevarría, MaryEllen Vogt, and Deborah Short for an empirically validated model of sheltered instruction. In the Third Edition of this best-seller, the authors include new research findings and studies on the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP®) Model, which offers school administrators, teachers, teacher candidates, coaches, university faculty, and field experience supervisors a tool for observing and quantifying a teacher's implementation of quality sheltered instruction.

—Socorro Herrera, Kansas State University

 

“Readability, organization, and practicality! The SIOP addresses precisely the needs that my beginning teachers face…the CD for SIOP…makes it all understandable. I love the book!”

—Danny Brassell, California State University, Dominguez Hills

  • New, user-friendly format of the SIOP® protocol.
  •  Background Sections include descriptions of the eight components and thirty features of the SIOP® Model, and are updated to reflect recent research and best practices to help readers plan and prepare effective sheltered lessons.
  • Practical Guidelines to help readers develop effective language and content objectives.
  • Discussion Questions have been rewritten and are appropriate for portfolio development in pre-service and graduate classes, for professional development workshops, or for teacher reflection and application.
  • A groundbreaking CD-ROM with video clips, interviews of the authors, and reproducible resources (e.g., lesson plan formats), make this the perfect professional development asset for any grade level or content area teacher!

Book News Annotation:

This book/CD-ROM text package for pre- and in-service teachers explains how to use the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) Model, a field-tested model of instruction for English language learners in elementary and secondary classrooms. After an introduction to sheltered instruction, the book details the SIOP Model and gives examples of lesson plans, then discusses the needs of English learners with reading problems and learning disabilities. Pedagogical features include chapter objectives, summaries, discussion questions, and a glossary. This third edition provides more specific guidance on writing content and language objectives for every lesson, and a new appendix provides four different formats for lesson plans. The CD-ROM, new to this edition, contains real classroom video clips illustrating each of the SIOP Model's eight components, plus interviews with the authors, lesson plan formats, and other reproducible resources. The author is affiliated with California State University-Long Beach. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
