Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

Ready to get started with SIOP ® ? Start with this book!

 

This book introduces and explains the SIOP ® (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) Model, a comprehensive, coherent, research-validated model of sheltered instruction, now implemented in districts throughout all 50 states and in dozens of countries. The SIOP Model improves teaching effectiveness and results in academic gains for students.

 

The SIOP® Model, developed by the authors over 15 years ago, offers teachers a comprehensive, well-articulated model of instruction for planning and implementing lessons that helps educators a) provide English learners and other students with access to grade-level content standards, b) develop the students’ academic English skills, and c) prepare students to be college and career ready. The only research-validated model of instruction currently available for teaching English learners, the SIOP® Model is applicable across content areas and is now being implemented at all levels of education from pre—K to community colleges and universities.

Do not buy the kindle version, it is a PDF. It does not scale correctly and is not readable on a kindle. In fact, the kindle version is a rip off. Amazon should be ashamed for taking money for this crap.

Jana J. Echevarria does a better job at breaking down the SIOP Model than any other book I've ever read in regards to SIOP. I purchased this book as a textbook for my Teaching English as a Second Language Graduate Class. Most textbooks contain some, but not all useful information about a subject. After taking my class and reading this book, I have no lingering questions about the details of the SIOP Model, the practicality of the SIOP Model, or the ways of the SIOP Model's operation. If you are an educator who works with English Language Learners at any level, this book is a must have book. I purchased the book for half the cost of my college campus's book price from the seller on Amazon. Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners arrived on my door step just three days after the order was made. I ordered this book as a brand new book and still got a heck of a bargain from Amazon. I would recommend the book, the seller, and Amazon to any and all people who read any type of books.

I bought this book for a class, but it was so easy to use and helpful that I chose to keep it after the class ended. The main thing I really learned from this book was the need for having language objectives along with content objectives so that students know what is expected. The lesson plans are helpful, and the authors really make this book user friendly. I used this book with my English language learners.

Format: Paperback
This is an appalling textbook. it's filled with Jargon, pointless unmemorable and poorly explained or unexplained acronyms, (SIOP isn't clearly defined until chapter 2) and a voice that seems completely disconnected from the subject matter. If you've ever used the word "COMPREHENSIBLE" in polite conversation this is the book for you.
As someone with a BS in Engineering Technology I've had to read many textbooks most of which dealt with complex and highly technical concepts and ideas such as, green building technique, physics, chemistry, and even statics and dynamics, these textbooks were all written in an accessible manner. They avoided the use of Jargon and Acronyms and employed a voice suitable for someone with a 9th grade reading level. This book goes in the opposite direction.

One of the topics discussed in the book is "Modeling" as in, "I will model a specific behavior to my students". This is a particularly good idea. However, what this book does is model the use of post graduate level reading, writing, and speaking to readers who are being asked to teach students who don't understand reading, writing, or speaking in English.

If you are education professor who wants to instruct their students on how to teach English learners Pick a different book!

This book has a lot to offer any teacher who wants to help their students, not just ESL. When students want more of what you are you are doing, you know it is a good thing.

Pearson. publishers and the SIOP authors continue to expand on the SIOP model and provide more examples of how to put research and theory into actions. The newest edition is a bit pricy but a good resource for any teacher working with English Language Learners.
