Overview

Based on the widely used resource, Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners: The SIOP ® Model, which includes all grade levels, this book is tailored to the specific needs of elementary school students, and their teachers, as teachers implement high-quality sheltered lesson planning, delivery, and assessment.

Making Content Comprehensible for Elementary English Learners presents teachers with specific lesson plans, strategies, and instructional activities for implementing the SIOP® Model in their own classrooms. The book opens with an introductory chapter that provides an overview of issues in the education of English learners. Each chapter that follows discusses one of the eight components of the research-based SIOP® Model and offers specific guidance on how to implement the component in elementary classrooms.

Ringing Endorsements

“As a classroom teacher with English learners, this book would be a savior in assisting me with my teaching.”

–Jodi Grubb, Pittsfield Elementary School, Pittsfield, NH

“This is a fabulous resource for elementary teachers who have English language learners of all proficiency levels in their classrooms. [The book] is especially helpful for those [teachers] who do not have much ELL support and not enough minutes in the day. The SIOP® model allows you to work with your ELLs while still teaching content/grade level material…It is obvious that the authors know what teachers need and…give both the strategies that teachers are longing for while also providing them with the research-based knowledge to help [teachers] understand…Excellent!”

–Lisa J. DeMaagd, ELL teacher, Taft Elementary, Wyoming, MI

Take a Glimpse Inside:

  • Incorporates the most up-to-date research published in 2008 and 2009.
  • Features new vignettes of three elementary teachers’ lessons on the same curriculum topic in each of the component chapters. Readers analyze elementary school lesson descriptions and use the SIOP® protocol to rate the degree to which the SIOP® components and features are implemented in each of the lessons.
  • Provides many “use-tomorrow” instructional ideas and techniques that are especially effective for teaching elementary school students, including English learners.
  • Focuses special attention on meeting the needs of struggling readers.
  • Includes suggestions for writing content and language objectives.
  • Addresses Response to Intervention (RtI) with recommendations for modifying the SIOP® Model program design, and implementation for students with special needs.
  • Includes a CD-ROM with video vignettes of elementary school instruction that exemplifies each of the eight SIOP® components, as well as brief video clips of the authors speaking about different aspects of the SIOP® Model.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“As a classroom teacher with English learners, this book would be a savior in assisting me with my teaching.”- Jodi Grubb, Pittsfield Elementary School, Pittsfield, NH

“This is a fabulous resource for elementary teachers who have English language learners of all proficiency levels in their classrooms. [The book] is especially helpful for those buildings that do not have much ELL support and not enough minutes in the day. The SIOP model allows you to work with your ELLs while still teaching content/grade level material…It is obvious that the authors know what teachers need and…give both the strategies that teachers are longing for while also providing them with the research based knowledge to help [teachers] understand…Excellent!” —Lisa J. DeMaagd, ELL teacher, Taft Elementary, Wyoming, MI

“This book is very readable and clear...The author[s] have an excellent grasp of what classroom teachers need…[the book] gave me great insight to helping students with diverse backgrounds…It was great to see one lesson beging taught in a variety of ways (three) and then having the discussion of why one teacher got a better score on the rubric then the other. I think this would help me tremendously on how to use the [SIOP Model] in the classroom.” —Jodi Grubb, second grade teacher, Pittsfield Elementary School, Pittsfield, NH

“This is an excellent resource and explained by the experts on SIOP. There is so much research and knowledge in this text. It would give teachers so much background on English language learners and how to teach these and all students. Good instruction is good instruction and it is explained well in this text.” —Carla R. Chavez, Prairie Park Elementary School, Lawrence, KS

“The [book] has so much great research and information about working with ELL students…it would be a valuable resource to all teachers, no matter the student population. Often Title one schools have students with low vobaulary that are native speakers, but the strategies [in this book] would be great for these students also.” —Carla R. Chavez, Prairie Park Elementary School, Lawrence, KS
