PCI: CAL SIOP for Dual Language Programs: Developing Language and Content in Two Languages

1:30 - 9:00pm

Albuquerque Convention Center, Ballroom C 

Presented at: La Cosecha 2019

This interactive institute is designed to provide participants with an overview on using  SIOP methods in DL instruction. K-12 DL teachers and coaches will learn about the eight components of the SIOP Model while addressing the three pillars of DL programs: bilingualism and biliteracy, high academic achievement, and socio-cultural competence. The institute will include a variety of activities, including demonstrations, simulations, explanations and small-group tasks and will encourage reflection needed for each teacher to adapt the CAL SIOP methods to their own unique circumstances. No prior knowledge of the SIOP Model is required for participation. School teams are encouraged to attend.
