3 Syllabus Introduction The purpose of this course is to prepare Massachusetts school administrators with the knowledge and skills necessary to be effective reviewers and instructional leaders of educators who teach English language learners, 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. This course is aligned with the Massachusetts Administrator Endorsement Subject Matter Knowledge Standards: 1. Understanding of diversity and background of English language learner populations, including family systems, neighborhoods, and communities, and their impact on teaching and learning 2. Building a culture of equity and inclusiveness for linguistically and culturally diverse populations 3. Implementation of strategies for coordinating instruction for English language learners (SEI and English language development) 4. Demonstrates an understanding of the use of best practices for sheltering content for, and teaching academic language to, English language learners in the classroom 5. Understands and appreciates the challenges that English language learners face in the mastery of academic language and assures that educators are equipped to shelter content and scaffold instruction to promote the academic achievement of English language learners The course has four overarching goals: 1. To enhance administrators leadership capacity so that they may effectively carry out their responsibility for a. Building school cultures of equity and inclusiveness b. Developing and enhancing appropriate programs and services for all English language learners c. Ensuring a collaborative vision in which all members of the school community share the responsibility for the achievement of English language learners 2. To expand administrators understanding of how language affects English language and content learning, and how children and adolescents learn language in academic settings 3. To build administrators knowledge about a. the English language learner student body within their schools; the heterogeneity of their English language learners b. laws and regulations affecting the education of English language learners c. effective program models that engage English language learners in acquiring English while they learn academic content, and d. research-based instructional practice that teachers employ to integrate subject area content, language, and literacy development per the expectations of the Massachusetts English Language Development (ELD) World Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) standards and thus to support ELL students success with the 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for English Language Arts and Literacy and Mathematics and other Massachusetts content standards Administrator Endorsement Course Version 2 Sept

4 4. To equip administrators to integrate the various initiatives throughout the Commonwealth as they relate to English language learners, including the new Educator Evaluation system. Several Massachusetts documents were used in the preparation of this course. These include: SEI Administrator Endorsement Subject Matter Knowledge Standards (SMK) SEI Teacher Endorsement Subject Matter Knowledge Standards Course (SEIT) Guidelines for the Preparation of Administrative Leaders (PSAL) Massachusetts Model System for Educator Evaluation, Part III: Guide to Rubrics for Superintendent, Administrator, and Teacher (MTRTE) Background The SEI Administrator Endorsement course, the SEI Teacher Endorsement course, and the Bridge Endorsement courses for teachers who have taken two or more Category trainings 1, together comprise three key elements of the Commonwealth s Rethinking Equity and Teaching for English Language Learners (RETELL) initiative. RETELL also includes statewide implementation of the WIDA English Language Development (ELD) standards, and the WIDA- ACCESS (Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State) assessment tools. Administrators will be introduced to ELD standards and WIDA tools in this course. More information about the RETELL initiative is available at All school administrators (principals, assistant principals, and supervisors or directors) who supervise or evaluate academic teachers of English language learners are required to earn the SEI Administrator Endorsement by July Upon successful completion of this course, participating administrators will receive an SEI Administrator Endorsement. During the course administrators will explore federal and state laws that pertain to the education of English language learners. They will analyze demographics, program models, and instructional practices in use in the classrooms in their schools that enroll English language learners and will develop professional and school plans to improve both programming and instruction for English language learners in their schools. All core academic teachers 2 responsible for the education of one or more ELLs are required to earn the SEI Teacher Endorsement between 2012 and 2016, typically through completion of the SEI Teacher Endorsement course. Upon successful completion of the course, participating teachers will receive an SEI endorsement. During the course, teachers are expected to practice instructional strategies grounded in SEI research both in the Endorsement course and in their classrooms. Teachers will also be encouraged to sustain and develop their SEI practices over time through one or more professional growth opportunities, including the following: 1 The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education developed the Category training model, which was presented in four sections. Educators who participated in two of the trainings from Categories 1, 2, and 4 are eligible for the SEI endorsement upon completion of a Bridge Course. The SEI Teacher Endorsement course replaces Category Training. 2 The following teachers are classified as core academic teachers under the regulations: early childhood and elementary teachers; teachers of students with moderate disabilities; teachers of students with severe disabilities; subject-area teachers in English, reading or language arts; mathematics, science; civics and government, economics, history, and geography. The classification applies to teachers in all Massachusetts public schools, including charter schools and education collaboratives. Administrator Endorsement Course Version 2 Sept

5 In many districts, support with the implementation of SEI strategies provided via the existing instructional coaching infrastructure, as part of literacy and mathematics instructional coaching; Professional development courses as approved by the ESE and local SEI affinity groups. ESE-sponsored SEI conferences; Whole-school mechanisms for sustaining focus on ELL needs including collaborative, job-embedded professional learning, promoted in the SEI Administrators Endorsement course; Participation in online professional learning networks through which teachers can share resources and strategies for helping ELLs access content standards while developing English language competency In many instances, it will also be important for teachers and their evaluators to extend the learning by making SEI the focus of professional practice goals as part of the new Educator Evaluation process. To support evaluators in this work, ESE is developing a tool, Resource for Evaluating Teachers of ELLs: Support for Understanding the Teacher Rubrics, which is one of the guiding documents of the SEI Administrator Endorsement course. All educators are also expected to earn at least 15 additional hours of professional development points (PDPs) in SEI or ESL in each licensure renewal cycle beginning July These opportunities to extend and sustain learning over time in a developmental way, with increasing experience, will provide an excellent way to meet the licensure renewal requirement. In addition, educators are expected to earn at least 15 hours of PDPs in Special Education during the same time frame. The RETELL initiative comes at a time when all administrators and teachers must be equipped to address the needs and build on the multilingual and multicultural assets of a diverse and everchanging student population in Massachusetts. The introduction of various educational reforms such as the 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for English Language Arts and Literacy and Mathematics, WIDA s ELD standards, and the Commonwealth s new Educator Evaluation system require teachers to assume new roles and responsibilities in their classrooms. This course will support the professional growth of administrators who supervise the teaching and learning of all students. The Nature of the Course The SEI Administrator Endorsement course is designed to promote continuous improvement in educator practice, and to build administrators confidence and familiarity with procedures and strategies for supporting teachers in developing research-proven practices for working with ELLs. Throughout the course, effective methods of examining data, observing teaching practice, and providing support to teachers will be explored. Assignments are designed to engage administrators in conducting research within their school buildings. Assignments include careful analysis of school, district, and state data pertaining to English language learners, as well as data collection on the classroom practice of SEI teachers. Administrators will learn about the elements to look for in teachers lesson plans, as well as the SEI strategies to look for during classroom observations. Throughout, administrators will be Administrator Endorsement Course Version 2 Sept

6 asked to reflect upon the implications of the course material and their findings on their responsibilities as school leaders. The SEI Administrator Endorsement course: systematically strengthens administrators capacity to ensure that their schools provide SEI effectively to all English language learners. is integrated with and supported by three other major initiatives underway in the Commonwealth: the implementation of the 2011 standards for ELA and math (incorporating the Common Core State Standards), the implementation of WIDA ELD standards for all educators, and the new Educator Evaluation system. acknowledges that to address the needs of ELLs, individual and collective ownership, collaborative practice between educators, and a whole-school approach are critical. The new SEI Administrator Endorsement course is cohesively connected to the SEI Teacher Endorsement course and supported by policies that require continuous educator growth over time. is facilitated by approved instructors who have been vetted through a comprehensive application and interview process, have participated in a rigorous training program, and will be subject to ongoing performance evaluation. is delivered in cohorts across the state. The cohorts will provide opportunities for online and in-district collaboration, peer support, and sharing of ideas and materials. SEI Administrator Course Session Overview This SEI Administrator Endorsement course is made up of five three-hour sessions. Session 1: Introduction, Law & SEI Considerations for ELLs Session 2: Vocabulary & Discourse Session 3: Reading Session 4: Writing& More Session 5: Integration In each session topics are explored within an overarching framework of guiding messages and guiding questions. Guiding messages stress the intersection of multiple laws, policies, standards, practices, tools, and resources that frame the responsibility for the academic success of English language learners, shared by all stakeholders within a school, and lead by school administrators. Guiding questions engage administrators in personal, school-based reflection on the implications of the course content they are learning: How does this affect my role and my responsibilities? How does this look in my school? How does this look in my teachers classrooms? Most sessions assign participants a small observation project. Each assignment is debriefed at the beginning of the following session. Course Requirements and Grading Course Expectations: SEI Administrator Endorsement course participants are expected to attend all classes, actively participate in sessions and complete all homework assignments.
