Allyn and Bacon, 2004 - Foreign Language Study - 237 pages
Like no other text on the market, "Making Content Comprehensible" presents an empirically validated model of sheltered instruction. This text contains the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) model, which provides school administrators, staff developers, teachers, teacher candidates, university faculty, and field experience supervisors with a tool for "observing and quantifying" a teacher's implementation of quality sheltered instruction.

“Making Content Comprehensible "is very practical and right on target for strategies in the field of ELLs."”
"“What clearly distinguishes" Making Content Comprehensible "from others in the field is that it provides an easy-to-use, powerful, field-tested protocol for effective lesson planning, delivery and assessment.”"
"“The strength of Making Content Comprehensible is the clear picture it provides of instruction and the teaching scenarios. The discussion of the teaching techniques and evaluation of each of the three teachers provides invaluable examples for the student.”"
