Summary

This book is an invaluable resource for training educators to work effectively with English language learners. It presents a model of sheltered instruction, the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP), which provides school administrators, teachers, teacher candidates, and university field experience supervisors with a tool for observing and quantifying a teacher's implementation of quality sheltered instruction.

Making Content Comprehensible 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. Each of the 30 items from the SIOP model are illustrated through vignettes. Three different lessons for each item are rated and discussed, allowing the book to be applied to a variety of content areas and grade levels.

Features :

  • Presents the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) as a reliable and valid model for teaching content to English Language Learners.
  • Vignettes make the concepts understandable as seen through teacher's descriptions.
  • An explicit scoring guide increases the usability of SIOP.
  • Specific, practical ideas for teaching English language learners increase the students' effectiveness in working with English language learners.
  • Overview of sheltered instruction creates a historical context for the SIOP.
