This book was required reading for a class I took on teaching English Language Learners (ELLs) using the SIOP, Sheltered English, instructional method. I found the book to be an EXCELLENT resource. It uses a very clear and structured approach to demonstrate how classroom teachers can incorporate research-based practices into their instruction to support learning for their ELL students or, in fact, any students that are having difficulty learning course content. The book provides many suggestions for practices that make content accessible and interesting to learn for students. It provides scenarios in each chapter showing how classroom teachers have incorporated these practices throughout their lessons. After I began using some of the practices with a 6-grade beginning English speaker, he finally started making real progress in learning. I recommend this book to anyone teaching ELL students.

Make this #1 choice for professional development

Mak[[ASIN:0205518869 Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners: The SIOP Model (3rd Edition) (SIOP Series)] is a "must read" for all ESOL educators in today's world of high stakes testing. The SIOP model described in this book is based on research of the best practices of sheltered ESOL and regular teachers. These "best practices" are combined in a format for teachers to use in planning and executing content area lessons that will also promote English language development. Since our ESOL students are expected to pass content area tests to receive a high school diploma in four years, it is imperative that we begin teaching them content in a structured way while they learn the English language. I've been to several conferences and workshops telling about the SIOP model, but this book has helped me to truly understand it and has inspired me to use the SIOP model in my content ESOL classes in the coming school year. If you only have a limited budget for professional resources, make this book your number 1 choice. Get your faculty together and use it as professional development tool to ensure that your ESOL students are receiving the best instruction possible to eqip them for education in American schools.


I had purchased this book for a class, I thought at first that I would not stay with this book after class; because it was just another textbook. But to my surprise this book does have an interesting form of stating the method. As a teacher, I am always looking for things to help in my teaching technique that will benefit the students. I have to say that some of the techniques that were mention in the book are what I have been doing tll now. Only that in the book it brings more indepth information to what other forms of teaching can be applicable to ones teachings. I say it is a good reading material as handy reference for new and veteran teachers too.
