Reflection: ELL Students Day Three of Seth Gets All Shook Up! - Section 3: Instruction


One of the most important components of the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) Model, is that students have opportunities to use process and interact with content.  There are a variety of methods that you can use to provide students with the opportunity to "chunk and chew" besides the standard "turn and talk" or "think-pair-share" methods.  The general idea is that for every 10 minutes of instruction, teachers should stop and give students 2 minutes to process the information.

You can have students:

  • Do a quick write.
  • Post a "Twitter" comment about the content (140 words or less - lends itself to a summary).
  • Post a "Facebook Status" about the content.
  • Write a note on a graphic organizer
  • Give a "Newspaper Headline" to the content presented.
  • Give a whiteboard response.
  • Any type of quick response that requires the student process the content.
