This curriculum project consists of lessons following the SIOP model for English Language Learners (ELLs) to supplement the New York state fifth grade social studies curriculum. This project was designed to complement and extend the 5th grade social studies curriculum at Fredonia Middle School. The eight components of the SIOP model are addressed specifically: Preparation, Building Background, Comprehensible Input, Strategies, Interaction, Practice and Application, Lesson Delivery and Review and Assessment. The SIOP model builds meaning through student interaction and comprehensible input. The nine units that SIOP lessons were created for in this curriculum project are: September 11th, 2001; the United States Constitution; the Louisiana Purchase; the Gold Rush; the Civil War; the Industrial Revolution; World war I; the 1920’s/Great Depression, and World War II. The purpose of this curriculum is to give teachers resources to make social studies instruction more meaningful to ELL students.
