SIOP Professional Development Online

SIOP {Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol} provides teachers with a set of guidelines for planning and teaching in a way that supports non-native & native English speaking students in the K-12 classroom.

​TESOL Trainers, Inc. offers experiential professional development on all aspects of Sheltered Instruction.  TESOL Trainers also offers online SIOP PD.

What will my teachers get out of TESOL Trainers’ SIOP Seminars?

Sheltered Instructional Techniques are more than best practices in teaching. The scope of SIOP helps teachers define and refine the way they plan and teach their lessons.  SIOP strategies that teachers use to support English language learners in the classroom are just as effective with all of their students regardless of their native language. Remote SIOP Workshops

The components and features of SIOP remind teachers of fundamental teaching strategies such as building background and scaffolding and critical teaching skills like giving clear instructions and encouraging higher order thinking skills.  A summary of SIOP can be found here.

How is the K-12 Professional Development Structured?

TESOL Trainers can design and deliver SIOP professional development workshops in a short-term or longer-term fashion.  We offer 1-2 day SIOP trainings, and we offer professional development that spans one academic year or more.

The focus can be an overview of SIOP or an in-depth look at SIOP, its 8 components and 30 features.  One or more aspects of SIOP can also be the focus {e.g. scaffolding, engaging students, turn-and-talk, etc}.

In addition, we offer a for-credit option with our SIOP PD for any institution that would like to reward their teachers by providing graduate credit for their efforts.

Any SIOP training can be combined with a Peer Coaching training to scaffold all teachers into implementing the strategies with fidelity.  See more about iCOACH© here.  Peer coaching is an empowering way to support all teachers.
