A user-friendly guide for administrators that provides the knowledge, tools, and resources necessary to understand and oversee the implementation of the SIOP® Model for teaching English learners.
A must-read for all administrators who work with English learners, The SIOP® Model for Administrators, 2/e provides the tools needed for supervising the education of this growing population of learners. It introduces a comprehensive, coherent, research-validated model–the SIOP Model–for teaching English learners and helping them meet rigorous academic standards, and includes concrete strategies and advice from other administrators to help principals, coordinators, and others implement the model, including guidance for getting started and sustaining the intervention. While summarizing 20 years of research that has proven the SIOP® Model’s effectiveness for all grades and subject areas, the book explains the second language acquisition process so administrators can understand how students best learn new languages.
