Webster University and KCPS will host the SIOP Institute Training for Teachers on June 11th, 12th, and 13th from 8:30am to 3:30pm. If you work with teachers of English learners who are unable to participate in Webster’s grant-funded ESOL certification program at this time, please let them know about this professional development opportunity.
Participants will gain practical skills to collaborate, share, and implement lesson plans that incorporate all eight components and thirty features of SIOP® in order to teach content while developing students’ academic and social language. In addition to the SIOP® Model text, participants receive a workbook and A+RISE sampler cards to support their implementation of the model upon returning to their schools.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Explain eight factors that affect second-language acquisition.
- Identify the components and features of the SIOP® Model.
- Observe and practice each of the eight components.
- Incorporate the SIOP® Model into lesson planning.
- Build a sample lesson using SIOP®.
The institute will be led by Pearson staff, and stipends will be paid to participants who attend all three sessions. Please advise anyone interested in applying to email firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, school, and grade/subject ASAP.
