November 1 - December 7, 2020 Assessing English Learners in U.S. Schools by Timothy L Farnsworth and Margaret E Malone Participants can purchase the book here, copy and paste the link to your browser: https://www.amazon.com/Assessing-English-Learners-U-S-Schools/dp/1942223188/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=Assessing+English+Learners+in+U.S.+Schools&qid=1590511547&sr=8-2 Description: Why assess? And what will I do with the results? This book examines classroom assessment (not standardized assessment) through the lenses of three ESL teachers from across the United States. The teachers face a number of challenges particular to their individual situations, and other challenges common to all U.S. public school teachers. Most important, this book views teachers as the people best able to make their students successful. The decisions they make about assessments in the areas of literacy, oral language, and content-specific language development result in actionable information. Short reflections, jargon sidebars, and chapter activities make this an enjoyable, user-friendly resource for teachers in any classroom. Participants will be expected to address weekly discussion prompts in paragraph form and also respond to the posts of 2 colleagues. The discussion forum can be accessed through "Discussions" on the sidebar menu. Each week's assignments are organized within a folder that will open at 8am each Monday morning (see dates above). The folders are located in "Content" on the sidebar menu. At the conclusion of the text, participants will write a two page reflection describing one aspect from the book that will be put into practice. This book study satisfies the DESE re-licensure requirements for 15 PDPs in SEI or ESL. More

This is not your average PD book - written by super dynamic, engaging, and award-winning teachers Dan Ryder and Amy Burvall, it’s energizing and refreshing, helping teachers explore how creativity can transform learning for students. The first half of Intention delves into the “what” and “why” of critical creativity - the pedagogical and philosophical underpinnings - while the second half has dozens of classroom activities, rubrics, and strategies that can be used at any grade level, any subject area, and any classroom. We will also have an opportunity to invite Dan to join us online during our course. The book study is self-paced and 15 PDPs will be offered for successful completion of the book study.  Participants will need to purchase the book:

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 supervisors/administrators. 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 English Learners (ELs). 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. All class meetings will be online via Zoom.  

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