Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I'll never teach the old way again."

-Teacher, Little Rock School District

"SIOP ® helps teachers plan and deliver quality instruction for all students. Bottom line, there is no other professional development that provides teachers with a complete model for instruction."

-Dr. Katharine Garcia, Alief ISD, Houston, TX

"We started SIOP ® in 2003 and our state math proficiency went from 39% for our ELL sub group to 75%. In reading it went from 29% to 72%, so we attribute a lot of that to our SIOP ® model."

-Patricia Smiley, Director of Instruction, Emporia, Kansas

"An effective teacher is effective whether they have a gifted child, an ELL child or an at risk child. So I do believe that the key is effective teachers and effective teachers come from effective training."

-Diane Hart, K-12 Supervisor, Cobb County Georgia

"I see SIOP ® working for all kids. Its basic good practice, so I think it applies to all classrooms, all situations, small group, large group, everything."

-Jane McCoy, Instructional Coach Emporia, Kansas

"With SIOP ®, teachers learn to write language objectives to match content regardless of the curriculum area."

- Dr. Karen Broadnax, Director ESL/Multilingual Services

    Outstanding Resource!

    The SIOP model provides a comprehensive framework that clearly delineates the essential components of an effective lesson specifically targeted to meet the needs of English Learners. It's much more than just 'good teaching', it is about incorporating both language and content objectives in every lesson while making the lesson comprehensible.
