This course contains information regarding the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol, S.I.O.P. This is a course to help general education educators, special education educators, ESL educators learn how to effectively teach content and academic English language simultaneously to students whose native language is not English. It is intended as a sustaining tool for people who have completed the SIOP training, however there are valuable resources and tools that will benefit those that have not. We encourage each and everyone to attend the actual SIOP training as it is a framework for teaching language to children which is beneficial for ALL students but ESSENTIAL for English Language Learners.
