The SIOP® I Institute helps educators learn the SIOP® (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) Model to teach both content knowledge and academic language skills in ways that are proven to be more effective for English learners. During the two and half day workshop participants will gain practical skills to collaborate, share, and implement lesson plans that incorporate all eight components and thirty features of SIOP®, in order to teach content while developing students' academic and social language.

About the SIOP® Model
