English Language Development


English Language Development (ELD) services, in combination with general education, provide K-12 students whose native language is not English, the ability to develop English language proficiency in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP)

SIOP is a research-based, instructional model that is highly effective in helping Bethel teachers plan and deliver lessons that allow English learners to acquire academic knowledge as they develop English language.

The SIOP Model includes the following eight components:
1. Lesson Preparation
2. Building Background
3. Comprehensible Input
4. Strategies 
5. Interaction
6. Practice and Application
7. Lesson Delivery
8. Review and Assessment
