CAL SIOP Training of Trainers Institute: Advanced Coaching Strategies
Learn effective strategies for providing job-embedded support for teachers implementing the SIOP Model in your schools.
This comprehensive and interactive institute is designed to help participants develop and deliver SIOP Model professional development as coaches or other instructional leadership roles.
The Advanced institute is designed for those who are supporting teachers with a knowledge of the SIOP Model. In this institute, participants will review and renew specific features of the SIOP Model in order to deepen their knowledge of the SIOP Model. They will also extend their own professional skills in supporting teachers’ SIOP implementation through providing job embedded professional development such as SIOP coaching, supporting lesson planning in grade level or professional learning communities, and lesson study.
This is the right strand for those who:
- Have attended at least a four day introductory SIOP workshop and have a strong knowledge base of the SIOP Model
- Have implemented the SIOP Model in their classrooms and/or have a lot of experience supporting teachers who implement the SIOP Model
- Have attended SIOP TOT I: Foundations.
- Are able to identify examples of SIOP implementation but need more assistance in helping teachers implement with fidelity.
Please note: this institute is not intended for those who are learning SIOP for the first time. Contact CAL about SIOP introductory workshops that we can deliver in your schools.
About CAL SIOP Institutes
SIOP Training of Trainers (TOT) institutes are designed for district professional developers, district and school-based coaches, administrators, and teacher leaders who have substantial experience with the SIOP Model and who support teacher instruction.
