21 What is ESL? English as a Second Language-students receive specified periods of instruction aimed at the development of English language skills, with a primary focus to learn the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skill for reading and language arts.
22 What is Sheltered Instruction? is an approach to instruction and classroom management that teachers can use to help English language learners acquire and learn English and also learn content area knowledge and skills. an approach in which students develop knowledge in specific subject areas through the medium of English, their second language; teachers adjust the language demands of the lesson in many ways, such as modifying speech rate and tone, using context clues and models extensively, relating instruction to student experience, adapting the language of texts or tasks and using certain methods familiar to language (e.g., demonstrations, visuals, graphic organizers cooperative work, etc.) to make academic instruction more accessible to students of different English proficiency levels.
23 Sheltered Instruction Sheltered Instruction is a means for making grade-level content, such as science, social studies, and math, more accessible for English language learners while also promoting English development. SIOP The SIOP Model is a research-based and validated model of sheltered instruction. Professional development in the SIOP Model helps teachers plan and deliver lessons that allow English learners to acquire academic knowledge as they develop English language proficiency.
