Has any second teachers here had any SIOP (sheltered instruction observation protocol) training? If so, I am wondering if anyone would please share examples of their content and language objectives, specifically in the area of science, social studies and math.

I've had SIOP training, but I can't help with the objectives in the other areas because I teach English.

SIOP is about strategies, though. What kind of content and language objectives are you wanting?

I'm specifically wanting content and language objectives that have to do with math, social studies and science.

For example,
Content objective: Learn about the social structure, government, etc of Ancient Egypt

Language Objective: Write a paragraph with topic sentence and details about Ancient Egypt.

They don't give objectives like that in their training. The training focuses on how to provide ESOL students with strategies to use in all content areas.

Here's one for math:

Content Objective: Convert decimals to fractions.

Language Objective: Write a word problem that requires you to convert decimals to fractions.

OR

Discuss ways to remember how to convert from a decimal to a fraction.

OR

Make a poster listing the steps for converting from a decimal to a fraction.

I hope that helps!

Content Objective: Whatever the "state standard" is that the students are learning.

Language Objective: What task do you want the students to do, and what tool will you use for it.

Example:

CO: SWBAT expand fluency in the base ten numeration system.
LO: SWBAT locate prime and composite numbers using a 100 chart, divisibility rules, and colored pencils.

Hope this helps.
