Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners: The SIOP Model
About the Course
Educators will actively participate in online learning in this book study class exploring how teachers can use the 8 components of the SIOP (sheltered instruction observation protocol) model to enhance their lesson planning and teaching practices. Educators will apply their knowledge of this model by reviewing and rating teaching scenarios, creating a lesson planning form for both language and content objectives and reflecting on their learning through discussion posts and journal entries.
