I have very little practice using SDAIE strategies myself, but there was one from the SIOP book that I really liked. The book talks about the importance of clearly defined and understood objectives using studentfriendly language. This strategy is important because students must know objectives in order to have a focus for a lesson. The most important part of this is “studentfriendly” language though. Students must understand an objective for it to be effective. Otherwise there is no use in stating class objectives. This means that teachers must know the language level of students in their classes and write objectives accordingly. Many students will not understand objectives that are written in the language of the California PE Framework, so it would do me no good to write objectives in such a way. Also, after presenting the language in studentfriendly language, the teacher should always check for understanding. Just because a teacher thinks a student will understand the objective, it does not mean that the teacher can assume all students understand.
