Using your SIOP Model Planning Sheet, in addition to your instructor’s feedback on this assignment from Week 4, you will be transforming an ordinary lesson plan into a SIOP lesson plan that will meet the diverse needs of ELLs by applying the knowledge you have learned throughout this course. Your lesson plan must have evidence for each component of the SIOP Model: lesson preparation, building background, comprehensible input, strategies, interaction, practice/application, lesson delivery, and review/assessment.
You will be using the same lesson plan to modify that you selected in Week 4 during your planning stage:
You will use the following SIOP Model Lesson Plan Template (attach below) to complete your modified lesson plan and to ensure that all eight components of the SIOP model are evident in your lesson plan. Feel free to review the videos on the 8 components of the SIOP Model from Week 4’s assignment for additional support.
You are going to describe two additional instructional accommodations or modifications that you would specifically provide for your chosen case study student. This section is clearly marked in your SIOP Model Lesson Plan Template. Be sure to use evidence from the text and one additional scholarly sources to support your reasons for the accommodations or modifications you recommend for your case study student.
Choose one of the case study students below to make those specific accommodations or modifications in meeting their individual needs.

He had about four years of full-time schooling in Vietnam and is proficient in his first language. He did really well in school until he moved to the United States as a refugee. He does really well in math but is failing his language arts classes. His attendance has also been intermittent as he gets sick a lot. He is the smallest boy in class and does not talk very much. He does not have basic interpersonal communication skills (BICS) or cognitive academic language proficiency (CALP). According to the stages of second language acquisition , he is at early production stage in reading, writing, and listening/speaking.

Her father is in the United States for business reasons. They plan on moving back to Germany in three years, when the contract expires. Sara aims to please, but does not initiate conversations with other students. She was educated in her home country and, in fact, studied some English as a foreign language in school. Her teachers are pleased with her work, given the limited time she has been in this country. According to the stages of second language acquisition, she exhibits intermediate fluency in in listening/speaking and continued language development in reading and writing.
Reflect on the following question: Do you think the SIOP model is realistic for teachers to follow? Why or why not? Be specific by providing at least two reasons for your opinion. Be sure to provide evidence from the text and/or scholarly source to validate your reasoning.
