Description

The Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) Teacher Endorsement course focuses on current theory and practice related to the teaching of English language learners (ELLs). This course is designed to promote continuous improvement in educator practice, and to build teachers’ confidence and familiarity with research-proven practices for working with ELLs in a sheltered instruction context. Throughout the course, effective research- based strategies will be modeled. Teachers will have opportunities to learn the components of a sheltered lesson, practice the modeled strategies, to analyze their practice, to provide and receive feedback, and to reflect on their experiences. Through this cycle of reflective practice, teachers will gain new skills, knowledge, and dispositions for the education of English learners.

This course includes a pre-practicum field-based experience. For more information, please see our Pre-Practicum FAQ.

Important Information

Registration

A maximum class size is set for each course and registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. If the number of registrations for a course exceeds the maximum seats available, we will inform you of available options.

If course enrollment is too low to be able to conduct a quality learning experience, options will be made available that may include taking the course in another location or semester, or participating in face-to-face sessions virtually, where students see, hear, and interact with the class through the web.

Some courses may continue to have seats available after online registration has closed. Please contact the Licensure Registrar at registrar@collaborative.org or (413) 586-4900, Option 5, if you would like to register for this course after online registration has closed.

Registrations submitted after the 5:00pm deadline noted for each course must be sent by mail and include the course tuition. Please contact the registrar at registrar@collaborative.org.

Coursework and Attendance

Attendance at all face-to-face sessions is mandatory. Missing a face-to-face session will reduce your grade by one letter grade. If you know you cannot attend one of the face-to-face sessions for this course, please consider taking this course the next time it is offered.

All coursework is due by the course end date.
