Sheltered Instruction

5. Interaction: ELL's use English in multiple settings across content areas.6. Practice ' Application: lessons should include hands-on materials and activites to apply knowledge to the content.7. Lesson Delivery: how well the concept is supported during the lesson, what extent students' are engaged in the lesson, and how appropriate the lesson is to the pace of the students' abilities.8. Review ' Assessment

Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) is a model in which teachers simplify the English language in order to help their ELL students learn effectively.

Sheltered Instruction

1. Lesson Preparation: planning enables students to make connections between their own knowledge and new information being taught. 2. Building Background: concepts must be related to the students' background experiences.3. Comprehensible Input: teacher must use speech that is appropriate to the students' language proficieny level. 4. Strategies: techniques, methods, and mental processes that enhance comprehension for learning new information.

I believe that the Sheltered Instruction method of teaching ELL's is the best method out of them all. By keeping the students' in one classroom throughout the day they are learning the same material, at the same pace as the native English language students. They also do not have different teachers using different teaching methods which may get confusing at times.

Successfully preparing lessons and being able to teach both native English speakers and ELL's in one classroom is the major benefit for all teachers
