Making Content Comprehensible for Secondary English Learners: The SIOP® Model is written to give middle and secondary school teachers lesson plans, teaching ideas, and many effective activities for working successfully with adolescents who are English learners or who struggle with academic literacy. Several sample lessons and activities show the alignment of the SIOP Model to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Based on research that confirms that the SIOP Model (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) makes a positive difference academically for all students-and what works well for English learners will work equally well with other students-the book is ideal both for teachers who are already familiar with the SIOP Model, and those who are just learning about it. It gives educators a model for planning and implementing lessons that help the English learners in their charge gain access to grade-level content standards, and ultimately prepare them for life after high school, in college or a career.

"Schools are not intentionally equitable places for English learners to achieve, but they could be if the right system of support were put in place. Diane Staehr Fenner and Sydney Snyder recommend just such a system. Not only does it have significant potential for providing fuller access to the core curriculum, it also provides a path for teachers to travel as they navigate the individual needs of students and support their learning journeys." --Douglas Fisher, Coauthor of Visible Learning for Literacy A once-in-a-generation text for assisting a new generation of students Content teachers and ESOL teachers, take special note: if you're looking for a single resource to help your English learners meet the same challenging content standards as their English-proficient peers, your search is complete. Just dip into this toolbox of strategies, examples, templates, and activities from EL authorities Diane Staehr Fenner and Sydney Snyder. The best part? Unlocking English Learners' Potential supports teachers across all levels of experience. The question is not if English learners can succeed in today's more rigorous classrooms, but how. Unlocking English Learners' Potential is all about the how: How to scaffold ELs' instruction across content and grade levels How to promote ELs' oral language development and academic language How to help ELs analyze text through close reading and text-dependent questions How to build ELs' background knowledge How to design and use formative assessment with ELs Along the way, you'll build the collaboration, advocacy, and leadership skills that we all need if we're to fully support our English learners. After all, any one of us with at least one student acquiring English is now a teacher of ELs.

Like no other text on the market, "Making Content Comprehensible" presents an empirically validated model of sheltered instruction. This text contains the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) model, which provides school administrators, staff developers, teachers, teacher candidates, university faculty, and field experience supervisors with a tool for "observing and quantifying" a teacher's implementation of quality sheltered instruction. New to This Edition A new, additional chapter addresses the issue of English learners who are struggling readers and/or students with disabilities by including detailed information about learning disabilities and delayed development in reading (Ch. 10). Revised vignettes present teaching scenarios where three teachers teaching the same grade level and content attempt to include the focal SIOP indicators, with varying degrees of success. Complete lesson descriptors allow readers to score the three teaching scenarios and help readers develop a degree of inter-rater reliability. New pedagogy! Each chapter contains: A graphic organizer that provides an overview of the chapter. “Background Sections” that include descriptions of the 8 sections and 30 indicators of the SIOP to help readers plan and prepare effective sheltered lessons. “Background Discussion Questions” appropriate for portfolio development in pre-service and graduate classes, for professional development workshops, or for reflection. The new, larger trim size facilitates using in the classroom the SIOP long and short versions and the lesson plan forms and rating thevignettes. Includes both the full SIOP and an abbreviated version for the reader's use. Two different SIOP lesson plan formats that can be used for planning and preparation, depending on your needs. An Appendix contains the results of studies that demonstrate that English learners whose teachers used the SIOP model outperformed similar students whose teachers did not implement the model. “Making Content Comprehensible "is very practical and right on target for strategies in the field of ELLs."” Professor Gerald McCain, "Southern Oregon University" "“What clearly distinguishes" Making Content Comprehensible "from others in the field is that it provides an easy-to-use, powerful, field-tested protocol for effective lesson planning, delivery and assessment.”" Professor Karen L. Newman, "Indiana University" "“The strength of Making Content Comprehensible is the clear picture it provides of instruction and the teaching scenarios. The discussion of the teaching techniques and evaluation of each of the three teachers provides invaluable examples for the student.”" Professor Judith B.
