Degree Name



The research question addressed in this project was, Does using SIOP (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) help high school ELL students learn elementary mathematics? It documents one teacher's journey through creating a unique curriculum that incorporates the features of SIOP while addressing Minnesota state standards. The curriculum was developed based on Lindquist's research into the methods that are successful in teaching English Language Learners. The author documents the details of the unit and uses related research literature to construct meaning and validate the study. She describes the struggles and successes of both writing and implementing the curriculum and concludes that: 1) SIOP implementation is time consuming when first adding it to lessons but leads to better student learning and 2) English Language Learners benefit from a curriculum that takes into account their unique learning situation and abilities.
