Designed for administrators who want to support the academic achievement of English language learners (ELLs), this publication provides essential information about the education of ELLs, as well as a practical overview of the SIOP Model* and its effective implementation. The SIOP Model, a research based and validated model of sheltered instruction, allows educators to plan and implement high-quality sheltered lessons for ELLs that integrate English language and academic content instruction. Written by the researchers and developers of the SIOP Model, this book can help administrators design SIOP initiatives as well as support and assess teachers as they implement SIOP instruction in their schools and districts. Each chapter includes key information on the model and practical strategies to help administrators address the needs of ELLs. 2008. (120 pp).
