CAL SIOP Overview Institute

Enhance your knowledge and use of the SIOP Model to support classroom instruction for Multilingual learners at your school or district.

This multi-day comprehensive and interactive workshop is designed to help participants plan and deliver CAL SIOP Model lessons for linguistically and culturally diverse students.

PreK-12 teachers will learn and practice implementing the eight research-based components of the SIOP Model to effectively teach language and content. The Institute will include a variety of activities, including demonstrations, simulations and explanations, small-group tasks, video classroom observations, and the creation of activities and lessons. The workshop will encourage reflection needed for each teacher to adapt the CAL SIOP methods to their content area, grade level, student proficiency levels, program models, and school initiatives.

The SIOP Overview Institute is designed for those with little to no working knowledge of the SIOP Model. Participants will review the components of the SIOP Model and acquire knowledge and skills to help PreK-12 or adult education, teachers better integrate content and language instruction for multilingual learners.

This is the right strand for those who:

  • Have limited, or little experience with the SIOP Model, and would like a comprehensive introduction to its eight components and 30 features
  • May have attended a SIOP workshop in the past, but would like to prepare to teach others about the SIOP Model
