Overview

A unique resource for teachers facing the increasing number of English language learners in today's classrooms, Sheltered Instruction for English Language Learners is a guide to the successful implementation and evaluation of sheltered instruction. It presents the first field-tested model of sheltered instruction, the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP), which provides teachers with an easy-to-use tool for planning effective sheltered lessons and reflecting on their own teaching experience. In each chapter of Sheltered Instruction for English Language Learners, real-life teaching scenarios are used to present the key components of the SIOP model. Underlying strategies, as well as specific indicators of instruction, are identified in a clear and understandable style. At the same time, each vignette is full of useful, practical suggestions for teaching English language learners. Readers can gain ideas for lessons in a variety of content areas and grade levels, and learn techniques for adapting materials and instruction to best meet students' needs. Additionally, each chapter contains a scoring guide to provide feedback on a teacher's own experiences with the sheltered approach -- helping to identify strengths and weaknesses, and point the way toward effective teaching solutions. For pre-service and in-service teachers of English language learners.
