In this comprehensive guide, elementary educators receive a user-friendly approach for planning and implementing lessons that provide students access to grade-level content, develop students’ academic English skills, and prepare students to be college- and career-ready. Proven successful in improving teaching effectiveness and realizing academic gains for students, the SIOP® Model presented in this book can be implemented in all content areas, and across grade levels and English proficiency levels.

Highlights of the 3rd Edition include specific applications of SIOP® to college and career readiness standards, as well as new educational reforms such as ESSA. To help teachers implement the SIOP® Model, new learning aids have been added, including Reflect and Apply exercises, Teaching with Technology vignettes, a new SIOP® lesson plan template and sample lesson plans, and a new user-friendly approach to identifying and writing language objectives. The Enhanced Pearson eText version provides embedded video links that enable educators to see the SIOP Model in action, along with interviews featuring SIOP® educators.
