Today’s classrooms are wonderfully diverse. By the year 2025, one in four K-12 students will be an English Learner (EL). With such rich diversity, all teachers need greater support to help ELs – and all students – gain access to the content and language of a lesson.
The SIOP® (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) Model is the only empirically-validated sheltered instruction framework that meets this objective. The SIOP® Model promotes academic language development alongside acquisition of lesson content. Developed by Jana Echevarría, Ph.D., Deborah J. Short, Ph.D., and MaryEllen Vogt, Ed.D., the SIOP® Model offers teachers a proven, time-tested framework for moving all learners toward academic excellence.
THE SIOP® MODEL IS AN INSTRUCTIONAL FRAMEWORK. Authors Jana Echevarría, Ph.D., Deborah J. Short, Ph.D., and MaryEllen Vogt, Ed.D. share how the SIOP® Model helps teachers integrate language objectives into content instruction.
