Sheltered English Immersion (SEI)

Emmanuel College is now offering an SEI Endorsement Course.

Emmanuel's Sheltered English Immersion endorsment course gives educators the knowledge and skills they need to help students at all levels of English proficiency. Coursework prepares educators to effectively shelter their content instruction, which allows English language learners (ELLs) to access the curriculum and succeed in the classroom.

Students who complete Emmanuel's SEI course will be eligible for the state's SEI Teacher Endorsement. (Note: This program is not a requirement for earning a Master of Education degree at Emmanuel College.)

EDUC 5300 prepares the Commonwealth’s teachers with the knowledge and skills to effectively shelter their content instruction, so that our growing population of English language learners (ELLs) can access curriculum, achieve academic success, and contribute their multilingual and multicultural resources as participants and future leaders in the 21st century global economy.

*EDUC 5300 meets the regulatory requirements as required in 603 CMR 7.14 [(1) and (2)]. The coursework is in alignment with the regulations and guidelines for the Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) requirements. Educators who complete EDUC 5300 will be eligible for the SEI Teacher Endorsement.
