SIOP is a method of planning. Each lesson needs to cove 8 different aspects. You NEED to get this book to really get a good grasp of the method!
There are 8 components. We were paired up with one other teacher (I had a team member and we are both prego) and we were told to create a poster around our component.
Since we are prego, we BOTH were thinking about food! We did Lesson Prep!
The components are:
- Lesson Prep
- Building Background
- Comprehensible Input
- Practice and Application
- Lesson Delivery
- Review and Assessment
Our team (there were 5/9 team teachers at this training) learned a ton and began implementing what we learned the NEXT day. I have to tell you, I'm a FIRM believer in SIOP! If you get the chance to go to a training on the, DO IT!
