Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Objectives Introduction to the development of SIOP Where SIOP fits into the school reform process Effective implementation strategies How to build a professional development plan for SIOP
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory THE DEAD HORSE STORY Common advice from knowledgeable horse trainers includes the adage, “when the horse dies, dismount.” Seems simple enough. Yet in our business we don’t always follow that advice. Instead we often choose from an array of other alternative options which include:
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Trying a new bit or bridle Switching riders Appoint a committee to study the dead horse Riding the horse for longer periods of time Saying things like, “this is the way we’ve always ridden this horse” Arranging to visit other sites where they ride horses more effectively Increasing the standards for riding a dead horse Creating a test for measuring our riding ability Comparing how we’re riding now w/ how we rode 10 or 20 years ago Complaining about the state of horses these days Coming up with new styles of riding Tightening the cinch Blaming the horse’s parents, the problem is often in the breeding
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory ELL Challenges to Schools What are the major challenges? Language Issues Education History Issues Literacy Issues Disability Issues Mobility Issues Poverty Issues Others?
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory What is Shelter Instruction Definition A means for making content comprehensible for ELL’s while they develop English skills Types of Shelter SIOP CALLA SDAIE GLAD
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory ELD and Shelter Instruction: The Distinctions ELD English Language Development Shelter Instr. A means for making content comprehensible for ELL’s while they learn English
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Purpose ELD Develop English proficiency Learning content knowledge may be a by-product Shelter Instruction Develop knowledge in content areas Learning English is a by-product
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory SIOP Historical Development Prior to 1996 there was no common definition of SI nor understanding of what constituted an effective lesson. In 1996 CREDE funded a project to identify key practices that produced academic results. (M.S. ELL Shelter) The SIOP 8/30 protocol was developed to support a professional development program. SIOP training was developed to support implementation of the SIOP 8/30 Model.
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory What SIOP is NOT! An English language development program (no scope & sequence). An evaluation tool (1 st year). A stand alone program. A mainstream emersion class. A magic/silver bullet!!!
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory The SIOP 8/30 Model 8 Components Preparation Building background Comprehensible Input Strategies Interaction Practice/Application Lesson Delivery Review/Assessment
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Preparation 1.Content objectives (Discuss results of experiment on pressure, volume) 2.Language objectives (Use if... then statement to describe results of experiment on pressure & volume) 3.Age appropriate content concepts (avoid cognitive remediation) 4.Supplemental materials (realia) 5.Adaptation of Content (text) 6.Meaningful activities (models, simulation)
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Building Background 7. Concepts explicitly linked to student background experiences 8. Links explicitly made to past learning 9. Key vocabulary emphasized
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Comprehensible Input 10.Speech appropriate to student ELP 11.Explanation of academic tasks 12.Uses a variety of techniques to make content concepts clear
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Strategies 13.Student learning strategies 14.Use of verbal & instructional scaffolding techniques 15.Uses question types at different levels of blooms taxonomy
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Interaction 16.Frequent opportunities for student & teacher interactions 17.Grouping configurations to support lesson objectives 18.Provides sufficient wait time 19.Opportunities for students to clarify in L1
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Practice/Application 20.Provides manipulatives for practice 21.Provides activities to apply content & language knowledge 22.Activities in all 4 language domains
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Lesson Delivery 23.Content objectives clearly supported in lesson 24.Language objectives clearly supported in lesson 25.Students engaged 90-100% of time 26.Pacing of lesson appropriate
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Review/Assessment 27.Comprehensive review of vocabulary 28.Comprehensive review of content concepts 29.Regularly provides feedback on language and content output 30.Conducts assessment of student comprehension, ongoing basis throughout lesson
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Why hasn’t SIOP worked? Ineffective Immediate Strategies Stand Alone ELL Program Readiness Issues Effective Long term S.I. Model Professional Dev. School Reform Readiness Prepared
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Implementation Process Options Model A) year 1 – training, research; 2 – SIOP w/collaboration; 3 – observe & coach 1 Year Model) 1 st month – training on SIOP overview & Preparation; each month training on next component; observe only new component 2 Year Model) 1 st month – training on SIOP overview & Preparation; each quarter training on next component; observe only new component
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Readiness Issues!!! Curriculum Mapping/Standards Formal lesson plans Sufficient linguistics training Data collection & analysis process Colleague observation Administrative leadership Professional development plan
