Please use the
annotated bibliography to present an argument of SIOP practices for teachers to
use in the classroom with their ESL students. The articles must be quoted. Key
words include SIOP, high school teachers, content teacher, differentiation.
Title: Through SIOP, prepare
HS classroom teachers content to support linguistically diverse students
Problem Statement: With a continued rise
of limited English speakers to the United States, teachers are faced with the
immense struggle to meet ESL students content and language goals in the 9-12
Rationale: This topic is
significant because with the continued growth of limited English speakers,
brings an important question: "How do teachers in U.S schools accommodate
and support these students who sometimes have little to no English background
knowledge?" Especially with high test score demands, many teachers feel
lost and confused as to how the best practice is to support ESL students in
their classrooms. The
aim of my project will be to provide research based practices that aid in
supporting these teachers and students with their content teaching through SIOP
strategies. I will create a SIOP professional
development course and lesson plans that any mainstream classroom teacher
grades 9-12 can use to feel confident and prepared to create success with their
English Language Learners.
Write a compelling
argument that includes the major findings reported in your annotated review
along with the significant gaps in the research reported. In essence, you are
making an argument that validates the need for your Masters Project. There are
two components of this assignment:
Step One: Introduction to the Argument: You will write a
brief Introduction to your Argument. There are two components to be included in
this introduction: • general information/landscape about your topic with a
description of the research problem you will address in your Master’s Project
or Thesis. • a purpose statement that includes what you are exploring, why you
are exploring it, and for whose benefit.
Step Two: Complete a full-fledged argument. The format of your
argument can be a straightforward essay/argument or multi-genred. The structure
should follow APA guidelines, however, and be approximately 10 pages in length,
excluding the reference list. Use Times New Roman 12-point font and double
space throughout. Write in past tense. Do not use acronyms until after you have
spelled out the entire title.
Please see the
attached example. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
