                 Making Content Comprehensible for Secondary English Learners: The SIOP ® Model, 2/e

 Jana Echevarría, MaryEllen Vogt, Deborah Short

 

Welcome to the SIOP Model for middle and secondary school students and teachers.

 

Based on the widely used book, Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners: The SIOP® Model, which covers all grade levels, this parallel book is designed to meet the specific needs of middle and secondary school students and teachers. In addition to the core information about the SIOP Model, the authors include lesson plans, teaching ideas, and many effective activities for working with adolescents who are English learners or who struggle with academic literacy. Several lessons, ideas, and activities show the alignment of the SIOP Model to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Based on research that confirms that the SIOP Model (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) makes a positive difference academically for all students—and that what works well for English learners will work equally well with other students—the book is ideal both for teachers who are already familiar with the SIOP Model, and those who are just learning about it. It gives educators a model for planning and implementing lessons that help English learners in their charge gain access to grade-level content standards, and ultimately prepare them for life after high school, in college or a career.

 

 

"This text is relevant and necessary learning for pre-service teachers whether they are seeking ESL certification or not. With the growing demographic shifts, all teachers will inevitably have a few ore more ELs in their classrooms. More importantly, it places emphasis on necessary features which ought to be embedded in all lesson plans for ELs and other demographic groups which require direct and explicit instruction for mastery of academic language and content concepts."

— Miriam D. Ezzani, University of North Texas
