CAL SIOP Training of Trainers Institute: Advanced Coaching Strategies (In-Person Institute)

July 15 - July 18

July 15, 16, 17, and 18, 2024 | Attend this engaging in-person institute to learn effective strategies for providing job-embedded support for teachers implementing the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) Model in your schools. 

In-Person Institute


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 Strategies Institute is designed for those participants who have prior knowledge of the SIOP Model and are supporting teachers in their implementation. In this institute, participants will review and renew specific components and features to deepen their knowledge of the SIOP Model. Participants will also extend their own professional skills in supporting teachers’ application of the model by exploring the implementation of job-embedded professional development practices such as coaching, guided lesson planning by content area/grade level, development of professional learning communities, and lesson study. 

Participants will attend four 5.5-hour face-to-face sessions and complete activities that supplement the presentations. They will read relevant research articles, watch and “coach” classroom videos of SIOP lessons, apply what they learn to their coaching plans, and interact with other participants through discussions and activity participation. Participants will have the opportunity to meet with CAL facilitators daily to discuss best practices in SIOP professional development, network with other PD facilitators from schools around the world, and receive small group coaching from a CAL PD coach. 

This is the right strand of professional development for those who:

  • Have attended a full 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 the CAL SIOP Training of Trainers Foundations Institute or similar school/district-based training. 
  • Can identify examples of SIOP implementation, but need more assistance in helping teachers implement with fidelity. 
  • Are available between July 15–18, 2024, to attend in-person workshop sessions. 

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. Questions? Email CAL with any questions you may have about our offerings.
