SEI Teacher Endorsement Course

The Cape Cod Collaborative, in partnership with Collaborative for Educational Services, has been approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to provide the full, long-bridge, short-bridge, and administrator SEI courses for cost.  This is an ESE approved route to SEI Endorsement for all educators who have ELLs and their supervisors. This course meets the requirement for renewal.

The SEI Teacher Endorsement course focuses on current theories and evidence-based instructional practices related to the teaching of ELLs.  This course is designed to promote continuous improvement in educator practice and to build teacher’s confidence and familiarity with research-proven practices for working with ELLs.  Throughout the course, effective research-based strategies will be modeled.  Teachers will have opportunities to 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.
