Description

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.

Audience

K-12 Massachusetts core academic teachers who are seeking the mandatory SEI Endorsement for their license.

Credits

Participants who complete the course will be eligible for 67.5 PDPs. Participants can take the course for three graduate credits through Fitchburg State University at a cost to the participant of $345.

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.
