Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP): Transforming content-based subject teachers into language teachers.

“All teachers are language teachers” is a statement that is commonly uttered in most educational scenarios in the present. However, not all teachers are trained to be language teachers.

In this workshop, participants will inquire into the following questions:

  • How can we support content-based subject teachers to teach with students’ language levels in mind?
  • How can content-based subject teachers modify their resources and the learning experiences they design in order to meet students’ need?
  • How can considering macro and micro process while designing learning resources and experiences support language teachers (mother tongue and foreign language) to teach with language levels in mind?

As a polyglot, J. Rafael Angel offers a unique and updated approach to the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP), that not only empowers teachers to become sensitized about language levels and to take action to devise learning scenarios with pupils’ language levels in mind, but also helps teachers to understand how provide feedback depending on the linguistic background of students.

In this workshop participants will become acquainted with a wide variety of strategies to differentiate instruction and assessment with language levels in mind.
