This book introduces and explains the SIOP® (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) Model, a comprehensive, coherent, research-validated model of sheltered instruction, now implemented in districts throughout all 50 states and in dozens of countries. The SIOP® Model improves teaching effectiveness and results in academic gains for students.

The SIOP® Model, developed by the authors over 20 years ago, offers teachers a comprehensive, well-articulated model of instruction for planning and implementing lessons that helps educators:

a) provide English learners and other students with access to grade-level content standards,

b) develop the students’ academic English skills, and

c) prepare students to be college and career ready.

The only research-validated model of instruction currently available for teaching English learners, the SIOP® Model is applicable across content areas and is now being implemented at all levels of education from Pre-K to community colleges and universities. The fifth edition provides specific applications of the SIOP® to the College- and Career- Readiness Standards. The eText also includes a Reflect and Apply eText feature in which readers explain their rating of teachers’ lessons, Teaching with Technology vignettes that describe how to infuse technology into many different SIOP lessons, and new video links inserted throughout to illustrate chapter topics and discussion points. Check for Understanding and end-of-chapter quizzes provide a comprehensive means for gauging student understanding.
