This SEI Teacher Full Course equips participants with strategies to support ELLs' access to content instruction through evidence-based reading, writing and vocabulary interventions. The course blends face-to-face and online work. Successful completion of this course qualifies participants to apply for the Sheltered English Instruction (SEI) Endorsement.

Participants must have daily access to students in a classroom during the semester the course is taken.

The course schedule accommodates 12 face-to-face sessions, a capstone project presentation, online work between sessions, and three make-up sessions. 

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the rigor, pace, and intensity of the course, which leads to an Endorsement from the State for teachers, you may NOT miss more than two sessions. Missing MORE than two class sessions will result in a withdrawal grade.
