For All Teachers
Teaching Language Through Content
This technique focuses not only on learning a new language through content,
but using that language as a medium to learn mathematics,
science, social studies, or other academic subjects.
This approach is considered a
best practice for all teachers.
One of the reasons for the ever increasing interest among
educators in developing content-based language instruction
is the proven success of the SIOP Model with its focus on both language
and content objectives, and the Common Core concept that all teachers
are both language and content instructors.
