1 Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) for Science and Math Teachers

2 Agenda Welcome Session Objectives
Introduction to Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) Lesson Preparation Preparation Features Content and Language Objectives Wrap-up and questions

3 Session Objectives: Content Objectives: Participants will be able to:
Become familiar with Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) Explain the importance of including language and content objectives in lessons for English Language Learners (ELLs) Adapt content to the proficiency levels of ELLs Design and integrate meaningful activities into content areas

4 Session Objectives (cont)
Language Objectives: Participants will be able to: Discuss the components of the SIOP Identify the difference between content and language objectives by developing them for lesson plans and using resources Debate the inclusion of both kinds of objectives and use of supplementary materials.

5 What is Sheltered Instruction?
Sheltered instruction is an English immersion approach to instruction and classroom management that teachers can use to help second language learners to simultaneously acquire English and content area knowledge and skills.

6 Characteristics of Sheltered Instruction
Comprehensible input Warm, affective environment High levels of student interaction, including small-group and cooperative learning Student-centered More hands-on tasks Careful, comprehensive planning, including selecting key concepts from core curriculum

7 Characteristics of Sheltered Instruction (cont.)
Well-planned lessons Time-on-task Use of student background knowledge and experience Variety of delivery modes Grade-level content Checks for understanding Use of higher-order thinking skills Explicitly stated lesson objectives

8 Components of Sheltered Instruction
Modeling Hands-on-activities Realia Commercially-made pictures Teacher-made pictures Overhead projector Demonstrations Multimedia Timelines Graphs Bulletin boards Maps Globes Computers

9 Lesson Preparation Key to effective teaching and learning

10 Lesson Preparation Objectives should provide practice in reading, writing, listening, and speaking Incorporate strategies for grammar, vocabulary, and language learning; Objectives must be explicit to the students so that they know what the teacher expects them to learn each day.

11 Preparing a SIOP Lesson
Purpose: to develop an understanding of how to prepare a SIOP lesson. Materials: SIOP components, KWL chart, Preparation components handout. Warm-up activity: KWL Chart

12 SIOP Components Preparation Building Background Comprehensible Input
Strategies Interaction Practice/Application Lesson/Delivery Review/Assessment

13 Preparation Features Clearly defined content objectives for students
Clearly defined language objectives for students Content concepts appropriate for age and educational background. Supplementary materials used to a high degree, making the lesson clear and meaningful (e.g. graphs, models, visuals) Adaptation of content (e.g.text, assignment) to all levels of student proficiency. Meaningful activities that integrate lesson concepts (e.g. surveys, letter writing, simulations, constructing models) with language practice opportunities for reading, writing, listening, and/or speaking.

14 Debate Divide into 2 teams
Each team subdivides into pro and con position holders Topics for debate: Content objectives and language objectives should be addressed in separate lessons. It is necessary to tell the students the objectives each day Supplementary materials should be used in place of textbooks for ELLs. All lessons should include reading, writing, listening and speaking practice.

15 Debate (cont) Each subgroup prepares 3 or 4 points that support their position and identify a debater from the group.

16 Reason language objectives are problematic:
Content teachers do not know how to identify potential language objectives Content teachers do not have time to teach language Teaching language is often considered the role of the ESL teacher Content teachers do not know enough about their ELLs’ proficiency levels to determine appropriate language objectives.

17 The SIOP enables teachers to help students overcome obstacles they face due to lack of language proficiency. Plans LESSON PLAN SIOP SIOP Lesson

18 Content and Language Objectives
Purpose: to understand the importance of writing content and language objectives for each lesson and sharing them with English Language Learners everyday.

19 Activity #1 Think-Pair-Share: What is the difference between content and language objectives?

20 Content and Language Objectives (cont)
Example of a content objective for math: TAKS Objective 7 for Exit Level TAKS The student will demonstrate an understanding of two- and three-dimensional representations of geometric relationships and shapes. TESOL Objective 2: The student will use English to achieve academically in content areas.

21 Content and Language Objectives (cont)
Example of a content objective for science: Biology (12) Science concepts. The student knows that interdependence and interactions occur within an ecosystem. The student is expected to (E) investigate and explain the interactions in an ecosystem including food chains, food webs, and food pyramids. (Tested at grade 10) TESOL Objective 2: The student will use English to achieve academically in content areas.

22 Activity #2 Participants will work in small groups to develop 3 language objectives for their content area using handout Select one member of each group to share findings.

23 Wrap-up If your horse is dead, GET OFF! DEAD HORSE Make a new plan!
