The SEEM Collaborative has been approved by the MA DESE to provide full and administrator SEI Endorsement Courses for cost. This is an ESE approved route to SEI Endorsement for all educators who have ELLs and their supervisors.

The SEI Administrator Endorsement course is designed to promote continuous improvement in educator practice and to build administrators’ confidence and familiarity with procedures and strategies for supporting teachers in developing research-proven practices for working with ELLs. Throughout the course, effective methods of examining data, observing teaching practice, and providing support to teachers will be explored.

Assignments are designed to engage administrators in conducting research within their school buildings. Assignments include careful analysis of school, district, and state data pertaining to English Language Learners, as well as data collection on the classroom practice of SEI teachers. Administrators will learn about the elements to look for in teachers’ lesson plans, as well as the SEI strategies to look for during classroom observations. Throughout, administrators will be asked to reflect upon the implications of the course material and their findings on their responsibilities as school leaders.
Participants will receive 22.5 PDPs for successful completion of the course.  

Please be aware that the attendance policy is very strict and participants are not allowed any absences from the Administrator course. 

Books may be purchased for $20.

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 Fitchburg State University for an additional cost of $285 paid on the first day of the course directly to FSU. This is optional.
