Description

In response to frequent inquiries about how to implement the SIOP Model, acclaimed authors, MaryEllen Vogt and Jana Echevarria offer these research-based, SIOP-tested techniques for lessons that include the eight SIOP components. 

 

This book is an indispensable resource for teachers of English language learners, and it is the ideal companion to Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners: The SIOP Model. 

 

The first chapter includes a brief overview of the SIOP Model.  The following eight chapters provide use-tomorrow activities for each of the SIOP components: Preparation, Building Background, Comprehensible Input, Strategies, Interaction, Practice and Application, Lesson Delivery, and Review and Assessment.  

 

The 99 ideas and activities in this book include a few familiar techniques that have been shown to be especially effective for ELLs, as well as many new ideas to SIOP teachers.  All promote student-to-student and teacher-to-student interaction and involvement, so necessary for English language acquisition and content development.  Step-by-step directions and examples of content and language objectives are included for all ideas and activities.  Twelve sample SIOP lesson plans, six each for the elementary and secondary levels, depict how an activity for each of the SIOP components can be implemented effectively.
