CAL SIOP Training of Trainers Institute: Foundations
Enhance your SIOP Model knowledge to support delivery of effective professional development workshops at your school.
This comprehensive and interactive institute is designed to help participants develop and deliver SIOP Model professional development.
The Foundations institute is designed for those with a basic working knowledge of the SIOP Model through some past SIOP Model workshop attendance or self-study. Participants will review the SIOP Model and acquire knowledge and skills to help PreK-12 teachers better integrate content and language instruction for English learners.
This is the right strand for those who:
- Have some experience with the SIOP Model, but have not fully implemented the Model in their classroom
- Have not yet attended at least a four day SIOP introductory workshop and need a robust review of the SIOP Model
- Are interested in beginning to develop the skills of a SIOP facilitator
- Please note: this institute is not intended for those who are learning SIOP for the first time. Contact CAL about SIOP introductory workshops.
