Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners: The SIOP Model 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
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.
