SIOP KEY COMPONENTS

STUDY
PLAY
SIOP or SDAIE
Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocal / Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE) / Linked to Vygotsky's Proximal Development and Gardner's Multiple Intelligences
SIOP STRATEGIES
Cooperative learning / Explicit, targeted vocabulary development / Slower speech with clear enunciation and fewer idiomatic expressions / Visuals, demonstrations and hands-on learning / Text adaptations / Homework adaptations / Supplementary materials
SIOP LESSON PLAN SEQUENCE
Motivation, pre-knowledge activation / Modeling of new content / Practice scaffolded from intense to minimal guidance / Review of content by students / Post lesson assessment of objectives / Extension homework / REFLECTIONS on what DID OR DIDN'T WORK
SIOP MODEL COMPONENTS
1) Lesson Preparation 2) Building Background 3) Comprehensible Input 4) Strategies 5) Interaction 6) Practice/Application 7) Lesson Delivery 8) Review/Assessment
SIOP COMPONENT 1 - PREPARATION
Write content and language objectives clearly for students to see and make sure they are appropriate for age & educational background. Identify supplementary materials. Adapt content where needed. Plan meaningful activities that integrate lesson concepts (e.g., surveys, letter writing, simulations) with practice in R/W/L/S
SIOP COMPONENT 2 - BUILDING BACKGROUND
Explicitly link concepts to students' backgrounds and experiences, linking past learning and new concepts. Emphasize key vocabulary (e.g., introduce, write, repeat, and highlight)
SIOP COMPONENT 3 - COMPREHENSIBLE INPUT
Use speech appropriate for students' proficiency level. Explain academic tasks clearly. Use a variety of techniques to make content concepts clear (e.g. modeling, visuals, hands-on activities, demonstrations, gestures, body language)
SIOP COMPONENT 4 - STRATEGIES
Provide ample opportunity for students to problem solve, predict, organize, summarize, categorize, evaluate, self-monitor, etc. Use scaffolding techniques consistently. Use a variety of question types to promote higher-order thinking (literal, analytical, and interpretive questions)
SIOP COMPONENT 5 - INTERACTION
Frequent opportunity for interactions and discussion b/w teachers & students and among students, encouraging elaborated responses. Use group configurations, provide sufficient wait time for responses and give ample opportunities for students to clarify in their L1.
SIOP COMPONENT 6 - PRACTICE / APPLICATION
Provide hands-on materials and/or manipulatives including activities that apply content and language knowledge in the classroom. *Integrate all language skills (R/W/L/S)
SIOP COMPONENT 7 - LESSON DELIVERY
Support content and language objectives clearly. Engage students 90-100% of the time. Pace the lesson according to students' ability level.
SIOP COMPONENT 8 - REVIEW / ASSESSMENT
Give a comprehensive review of key vocabulary and key content concepts. Provide feedback regularly on their output (e.g., language, content, work). Conduct assessments of student comprehension & learning throughout lesson (e.g., spot checking, group response)
