  4. 4. Why is SIOP considered “best practice”? According to Echevarria et al. (2012) • ● ”Teaching the five major components of reading (NICHD, 2000) to English learners is necessary but not sufficient for developing academic literacy. ELs need to develop oral language proficiency as well. • ● Oralcy and literacy can develop simultaneously. • ● Academic literacy in the native language facilitates the development of academic • literacy in English. • ● High-quality instruction for English learners is similar to high- quality instruction for other, English-speaking students, but ELs need instructional accommodations and support to fully develop their English skills. • ● English learners need enhanced, explicit vocabulary development” (p. 14)

  7. 7. How-to-Honeycomb by Dr. Zoe Anne Brown • The Honeycomb has 3 main purposes 1. Makes content comprehensible 2. Incorporates college and career readiness essential standards 3. Supports instruction to allow English learners opportunities to master the same content and language objectives as their native-English speaking peers.
  8. 8. Honeycomb Method for Comprehensible Input The "How-to Honeycomb" concept and visual was created by consultant Dr. Zoe Ann Brown (findingedsolutions.com), 2013. http://www.teachingenglishlearners.com/ells-and-academic-success/key-strategies#.UzEF3r_A5G4
  9. 9. Discussion Questions from to Echevarria et al. (2012) • Reflect on an English language learner in one of your classes. Identify the individual and sociocultural factors that may influence the educational success of these students. In what ways might SIOP® Model instruction help them? • Many teachers fail to take advantage of the language learning opportunities for students in sheltered content classes. Why do you think this is so? Offer two concrete suggestions for these teachers to enhance their students’ language development • Look at one of your own lesson plans. Which characteristics of the SIOP® Model do you already incorporate? Which ones would you incorporate in the future?
