The SEEM Collaborative has been approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to provide the full and administrator SEI Endorsement courses for cost. This is an ESE approved route to SEI Endorsement for all educators and their supervisors.

The Sheltered English Instruction (SEI) Teachers Endorsement course is designed to help equip teachers to address the needs of a multilingual and multicultural student population by training teachers in research-proven practices for working with English Language Learners (ELLs). During the course, teachers are expected to practice instructional strategies grounded in SEI research both in the endorsement course and in their classrooms. Teachers will also be encouraged to sustain and develop their SEI practices over time through a variety of professional growth opportunities. This course is designed to promote continuous improvement in educator practice and to build teachers confidence and familiarity with instructional methodology for working with English Language Learners. All core academic teachers responsible for the education of one or more ELLs are required to earn the SEI Teacher Endorsement between 2012 and 2016, typically through completion of this course. Upon successful completion of the course, participating teachers will receive an SEI endorsement.

3 Graduate Credits are available through American International College for an additional cost of $200 paid by the second day of the course directly to AIC. This is optional.

PLEASE NOTE: Participants must have access to a classroom to participate in this course as classroom work will need to be performed between sessions. Also, participants will need to have basic computer skills and have access to a computer and internet in order to navigate the online platform that is used for this course and to complete assignments in the required templates. Classroom attendance is strictly enforced and participants are only allowed one absence.
