Scaffolding Professional Development

United States | General information | Popularity - 0/10
Scaffolding is one of the most misunderstood concepts in teaching.  While many educators claim to know what scaffolding is, their classes do not reflect an understanding.  TESOL Trainers can scaffold teachers into being able to scaffold any lesson to any group of students. 
Our K-12 professional development for remote, hybrid, or traditional settings sets teachers up for success by providing experiential, engaging workshops.  Our workshops don't just inspire teachers to improve their skills.  We empower them with the tools to succeed. Scaffolding Professional Development
Scaffolding Sets Students Up For Success
Scaffolding is structuring learning in a step by step manner so that students are able to demonstrate their learning without the teacher's support.  While teachers will say that breaking up a lesson into more digestible pieces is best, these same teachers often struggle with being able to scaffold learning effectively.
TESOL Trainers can help your teachers the fundamental principles of scaffolding learning.   Educators also learn techniques to scaffold a lesson plan as well as strategies to employ in order to scaffold learning while teaching. 
TESOL Trainers provides professional development that empowers and inspires teachers.  Participants in our teacher training sessions not only leave with a solid understanding of the content.  They also leave with the ability to integrate the PD's content into their teaching practices.
The Key to efficient & effective learning is scaffolding
No matter what you are teaching, one thing is certain:  a well-crafted lesson is also a well-scaffolded lesson.  When teachers don't scaffold, some learners may finish successfully, but most only find frustration.  In addition to the students feeling like they will never "get it", the teachers are left feeling frustrated that their students aren't rising the the challenge.
On the other hand, teachers who have gone through John Kongsvik's workshop on Scaffolding Students into Success, find they can easily scaffold students to owning the content and language of the lesson.
Remote SIOP PD
SIOP, or Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol, is a research based, instructional framework that teachers can use when planning, teaching, and reflecting upon their lessons.
SIOP encourages teachers to design and deliver student-centered lessons that maximize student opportunities to interact with the language, the content, and their peers in meaningful ways.
TESOL Trainers offers K-12 SIOP Training online and around the world.  Our remote PD is interactive and inspiring.  Our staff development will transform how your educators approach teaching and learning.
The History of SIOP
It used to be a mystery how to help English language learners succeed in the content area classroom.  Few K-12 instructors had adequate training in how best to work with ELs in the content area classroom.  Thus, educators began researching what teaching practices were best in working with non-native English speakers. Remote SIOP PD
When SIOP (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) was originally designed, it was created as a tool for observing how teachers in their classrooms supported ELs through ‘sheltered instruction’.  As the researchers (Jana Echevarria and Mary Ellen Vogt, from California State University, Long Beach) were developing this observation tool, they discovered how beneficial SIOP could be as an instructional model.
SIOP Overview
SIOP is broken down into 8 categories for teachers to consider when planning and teaching a lesson.    Each one of these components captures a critical component of teaching.
Each of these 8 SIOP components is broken down into features (30 in all) that serve to further define its purpose.
For example, within the SIOP component Lesson Preparation, you will find features like creating content and language objectives.  Engaging students 90-100% of the time is a feature that is found under the Lesson Delivery component.
