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”

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

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 ELs 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 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.
