On October 29, Chenango Valley teacher Mrs. Elizabeth Savelli led "Warrior Stretch" sessions on strategies to support the education and success of all students, including English-language learners (ELLs).
The workshops included discussion on how elementary/secondary classroom teachers can create lessons that address the academic and language needs of ELLs by using an instructional model called the “Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) Model.”
This model uses eight corresponding components:
- Lesson Preparation
- Building Background
- Comprehensible Input
- Lesson Delivery
Mrs. Savelli also shared a variety of resources, such as NewsELA and Reading Rockets, that can be used to help both students and teachers.
The goal of "Warrior Stretch" is to give faculty members the opportunity to provide their colleagues valuable information on school-based topics.
