Learn how to provide SIOP Model professional development tailored to the needs of your district and schools.
This comprehensive and interactive institute is designed to help participants develop and deliver SIOP Model professional development.
The Foundations institute is designed for those with a basic working knowledge of the SIOP Model through some past SIOP Model workshop attendance or self-study. Participants will review the SIOP Model and acquire knowledge and skills to help PreK-12 teachers better integrate content and language instruction for English learners.

Have some experience with the SIOP Model, but have not fully implemented the Model in their classroom
Have not yet attended at least a four day SIOP introductory workshop and need a robust review of the SIOP Model
Are interested in beginning to develop the skills of a SIOP facilitator
Please note: this institute is not intended for those who are learning SIOP for the first time. Contact CAL about SIOP introductory workshops.
