SIOP has 8 Components:
#1 Lesson Preparation
#2 Building Background Knowledge
#3 Comprehensible Input
#4 Strategies
#5 Interaction
#6 Practice and Application
#7 Lesson Delivery
#8 Review and Assessment
#1 Lesson Preparation
• Content Objectives (the What)
• Language Objective (the How)
• Content Concepts (Curriculum)
• Supplementary Materials
• Adaptation of Content
• Meaningful Activities
Content / Language
• Content Objectives: (GLE’s) What
students need to learn
• Language Objectives: How to show that
learning has taken place (reading,
writing, listening, speaking)
#2 Building Background
• Concepts Explicitly Linked
• Links Explicitly Made
• Key Vocabulary
Find Someone
1. Assign a question for students to discuss
2. Provide time for students to process
3. Ask students to “find someone” with the
same characteristic. For example: Sole
4. Students find their partner “mate” and share
*Make a list and put in a can for easy use
#3 Comprehensible Input
• Speech
• Clear Expectations
• A Variety of Techniques
Fact and Opinion Cadence- Use with Read Naturally
Facts and opinions are really neat
They help us understand what we read
Facts are true and can be proven
Opinions are what you think or believe in

Facts are true and can be proven
1, 2, 3, 4
Facts are names
Facts are dates
Facts are numbers
Opinions are what you think or believe in
Opinions are feelings
Opinions are changeable
Opinions are unprovable
Opinions are what you think or believe in
#4 Strategies
• Learning Strategies
• Scaffolding Techniques
• Questions or Tasks that Promote HigherOrder Thinking Skills
1. Assign a text to be read
2. Break it into as many parts as members in
the group
3. Assign each group member one part to read
4. Provide time to read
5. Group members share what they read
*Process grid, graphic organizer
#5 Interaction
• Interaction
• Grouping Configuration
• Wait Time for Student Responses
• Clarify Key Concepts in L1 (students
primary or first language)
Graffiti Write/ Jump N Jot
1. Break the class into groups
2. Assign a topic or question
3. Provide time to process/think
4. Give each group a poster and a set of pens- one
different color per student
5. Have students respond to your question in pictures,
words, phrases or sentences- all write on the same
poster paper
*Can be a review, formative assessment or summative
The goal is for all
students to be
engaged 90% of
the time!
#6 Practice and Application
• Hands-on Materials and Manipulatives
• Apply Content and Language Knowledge
• Language Skills
Anchor Charts
GLAD Pictorial Input Chart
GLAD Process Grid
Graphic Organizers
Pinterest: Anchor Charts- modify
Color Code
Brain Imprinting
Resource to refer to over time (add)
*Pair with a chant
#7 Lesson Delivery
• Student Engagement
• Lesson Pacing
The 5-2-1 Model
5 = Teacher Talk
2 = Process Time
1 = Student Share Time
For older students/
GLAD method: 10-2
#8 Review and Assessment
• Review of Key Vocabulary
• Review of Key Content Concepts
• Feedback
• Assessment of Student Comprehension and
Stay and Stray
1. Put students into groups of 3 to 5 people in different areas of
the classroom
2. Provide a question that students know a lot about (different
question per group)
3. Give them time to think and share aloud within their group
4. Have the group generate a poster with words, pictures,
phrases and/or sentences that capture key information about
that question. Each person needs to be involved in making
and being able to explain the content.
5. Randomly assign one person to “stay” and share the groups’
work as the rest of the members and groups rotate or “stray”
6. Repeat rotation- the person who stays this time may be a new
person or the previous one…
*Works nicely with “numbered heads”
