This book/CD-ROM text package for pre- and in-service teachers explains how to use the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) Model, a field-tested model of instruction for English language learners in elementary and secondary classrooms. After an introduction to sheltered instruction, the book details the SIOP Model and gives examples of lesson plans, then discusses the needs of English learners with reading problems and learning disabilities. Pedagogical features include chapter objectives, summaries, discussion questions, and a glossary. This third edition provides more specific guidance on writing content and language objectives for every lesson, and a new appendix provides four different formats for lesson plans. The CD-ROM, new to this edition, contains real classroom video clips illustrating each of the SIOP Model`s eight components, plus interviews with the authors, lesson plan formats, and other reproducible resources. The author is affiliated with California State University-Long Beach. Annotation )2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
