New Classroom Video With Companion Guide
SIOP in Action: Instructional Videos Featuring Complete SIOP Lessons at Three Grade Levels
CAL is pleased to introduce our newest SIOP resource which features videos of three specific SIOP lessons, each at a different grade level.
It is designed for districts and schools to develop a deeper understanding of the components of the SIOP Model and how to implement them effectively.
The three videos are available on a single DVD and include
- Second Grade Science Lesson: Life Cycle of a Butterfly
- Eighth Grade Math Lesson: Polyhedrons
- High School/GED English Arts Lesson: Irony
The DVD comes with a companion viewers guide the provides professional developers and educators with an overview of the SIOP lessons illustrated in the three videos, offers video observation tips and questions to guide the viewing of each lesson, and includes the three SIOP teachers’ lesson plans to deepen educators’ understanding of how to plan a lesson that integrates language and content instruction.
