Learn how to provide SIOP Model professional development tailored to the needs of your district and schools.
Please join us for this comprehensive and interactive
four-day institute designed to help participants develop and deliver the SIOP Model professional development.
This institute is designed for those with a working knowledge of the SIOP Model through past SIOP Model workshop attendance or self-study. Past participants include district professional developers, district and school-based coaches, administrators, and teacher leaders.
Modeled after CAL SIOP workshops and based on the resource, Using the SIOP Model: Professional Development Manual for Sheltered Instruction, participants will acquire the knowledge and skills to help PreK-12 teachers better integrate content and language instruction for English learners.
During this SIOP Training of Trainers Institute, participants will explore research-based lessons on effective professional development and adult learning. The institute will include a variety of activities, such as demonstration and explanation, analysis of video teaching sequences, and small group tasks. At the end of each workshop day, participants will plan a SIOP workshop or incorporate what they learned into their role-specific professional development activities. On the final day, participants will present their own workshop plans based on their learning.
