Join us this summer as we read Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain by Zaretta Hammond.



From Amazon.com:

“A bold, brain-based teaching approach to culturally responsive instruction

To close the achievement gap, diverse classrooms need a proven framework for optimizing student engagement. Culturally responsive instruction has shown promise, but many teachers have struggled with its implementation?until now.



In this book, Zaretta Hammond draws on cutting-edge neuroscience research to offer an innovative approach for designing and implementing brain-compatible culturally responsive instruction.



The book includes:


• Information on how one’s culture programs the brain to process data and affects learning relationships
• Ten "key moves" to build students’ learner operating systems and prepare them to become independent learners
• Prompts for action and valuable self-reflection”

This Summer Book Study is a nine week, online program:



We will start on June 25, 2018 and end on August 26, 2018.

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. 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 on the first 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 two absences.
