Consequently, all teachers and administrators must advocate for this all-important diverse group of students who will become tomorrow's workforce."--Back cover.

Like no other text on the market, "Making Content Comprehensible" presents an empirically validated model of sheltered instruction. This text contains the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) model, which provides school administrators, staff developers, teachers, teacher candidates, university faculty, and field experience supervisors with a tool for "observing and quantifying" a teacher's implementation of quality sheltered instruction. New to This Edition A new, additional chapter addresses the issue of English learners who are struggling readers and/or students with disabilities by including detailed information about learning disabilities and delayed development in reading (Ch. 10). Revised vignettes present teaching scenarios where three teachers teaching the same grade level and content attempt to include the focal SIOP indicators, with varying degrees of success. Complete lesson descriptors allow readers to score the three teaching scenarios and help readers develop a degree of inter-rater reliability. New pedagogy! Each chapter contains: A graphic organizer that provides an overview of the chapter. “Background Sections” that include descriptions of the 8 sections and 30 indicators of the SIOP to help readers plan and prepare effective sheltered lessons. “Background Discussion Questions” appropriate for portfolio development in pre-service and graduate classes, for professional development workshops, or for reflection. The new, larger trim size facilitates using in the classroom the SIOP long and short versions and the lesson plan forms and rating thevignettes. Includes both the full SIOP and an abbreviated version for the reader's use. Two different SIOP lesson plan formats that can be used for planning and preparation, depending on your needs. An Appendix contains the results of studies that demonstrate that English learners whose teachers used the SIOP model outperformed similar students whose teachers did not implement the model. “Making Content Comprehensible "is very practical and right on target for strategies in the field of ELLs."” Professor Gerald McCain, "Southern Oregon University" "“What clearly distinguishes" Making Content Comprehensible "from others in the field is that it provides an easy-to-use, powerful, field-tested protocol for effective lesson planning, delivery and assessment.”" Professor Karen L. Newman, "Indiana University" "“The strength of Making Content Comprehensible is the clear picture it provides of instruction and the teaching scenarios. The discussion of the teaching techniques and evaluation of each of the three teachers provides invaluable examples for the student.”" Professor Judith B.
