Teaching English Language Learners


The PowerPoint presentation below is based on my notes and abbreviated definitions of the main components and SIOP Features from the book, Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners: The SIOP Model by Jana Echevarria, MaryEllenVogt, and Deborah J. Short and published by Pearson Education.

The presentation is a cheat sheet, of sorts and gives the page number from the student text for each SIOP Feature. For best viewing results, click the full screen icon in the lower right corner of the presentation window to open full screen in a new page. From there you can use the menu to print, download a copy in PDF and several other options.
