THE SIOP MODEL FOR TEACHING ENGLISH-LANGUAGE ARTS TO ENGLISH LEARNERS

 

 

Based on the best-selling resource Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners: The SIOP® Model,  by acclaimed authors Jana Echevarria, MaryEllen Vogt, and Deborah Short, K-12 reading and English teachers, literacy coaches, reading specialists, and intervention teachers, now have access to research-based, SIOP-tested techniques for lessons specifically for the English-language arts (ELA) classroom.

 

In The SIOP® Model for Teaching English-Language Arts to English Learners, techniques and activities are organized around the eight SIOP® components to guide educators in promoting academic language and literacy development. To learn about other SIOP Model resources available, see the inside front cover.

 

Overwhelming Response from Reviewers!

“I think this is an excellent resource for ELA teachers… Many teachers struggle with writing lesson plans and implementing SIOP- this gives them a boost by demonstrating for them how to go through that process effectively!”

 - Karen Fichter, Vena Wilburn Year Round Elementary School, Raleigh NC

 

“The book is an outstanding example of collaborative effort. We have seen several other publications by Echevarria, Short, and Vogt; however this volume invites practitioners to contribute in a most meaningful way: through sharing outstanding examples of SIOP Unit plans.”

- Dr. Andrea Honigsfeld, Molloy College, Rockville Center

  • Presents a systematic process for teaching both ELA academic content and language to English learners.
  • Offers ideas and activities by grade-bands–K-2, 3-5 (or 6), 6-8, and 9-12
  • Provides use-tomorrow ideas and activities for implementing the eight components of the SIOP Model in an ELA classroom.
  • Includes lesson plans and comprehensive units that illustrate how a particular activity can be effective for ALL students, not just English learners.
