SIOP LPS SITESIOP is the acronym for Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol.  We are beginning to learn and use this highly researched method for teaching content and language.  13 grades k-5 teachers at Everett Elementary are participating in the pilot implementation as well as a group 20+ ELL teachers from various schools and grade levels.  We are working hard to contextualize the SIOP Model to LPS classrooms.

Visit the SIOP LPS ELL site to read more about SIOP, the current professional development plans and opportunities, as well as to find the SIOP resources currently being developed and adopted as we learn and implement the model.

Culturally Responsive Writing & Technology

The Danger of the Single Story

“All of these stories make me who I am. But to insist on only these negative stories is to flatten my experience and to overlook the many other stories that formed me. The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.” “I too am just as guilty in the question of the single story”.                                   Chimamanda Adichie
