Study examining the effects of SIOP model on the academic language performance of middle and high school English language learners. Results show that the SIOP model offers a promising approach to professional development that can improve the quality of instruction to English language learners and increase their English language achievement.
Results indicated that students in the SIOP group performed better than controls, although not to a significant degree. Reasons for these findings are explored.
A study designed to examine reading achievement of elementary English language learners in classrooms where teachers implemented a popular sheltered instruction model called SIOP compared with students of teachers who have not received instruction in the model. Researchers found significant differences in classrooms where the model was well-implemented. However, the differences come with qualifications, and the findings are critiqued in light of sociocultural theory and studies on professional development.
A review of published research by The What Works Clearinghouse (WCC) - an investment of the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) within the U.S. Department of Education. It concludes that the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of SIOP® on English language learners.
