Error messages can be aggravating for many of us, but nothing like how students feel when they experience that error message over and over again! In this course, we will examine ways to support learners with executive functioning deficits through incorporation of teaching strategies, environmental supports, and technology tools into the classroom.

Participants will explore resources and directly apply several of them within the classroom each week. Participants will collaborate as a supportive online learning community to share their best practices, strategies, and tools used in supporting students with executive function deficits. A portfolio will be created, and this living document can help educators hack the error message into a successful launch.

The course is arranged into four weekly self-directed modules. All required reading will be provided and posted on Canvas. Participants are expected to complete all readings and Discussions by the end of each week or dates as specified each week.

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