THE SEI ONLNE
A Free 15-Hour Course on Sheltered English Instruction
Developed by the SRI&ETTC Funded by the New Jersey Department of Education

Educating students who still are acquiring English proficiency can be complex in an age of high stakes evaluations and assessments as well as college and career-ready standards. English language learners (ELLs) are not monolithic in their educational background, cultural experiences, and ability to adapt to learning environments. However, through well-planned instruction, ELLs can attain challenging academic standards.

The FABRIC paradigm taught in The SEI Online allows teachers to provide diverse groups of ELLs with access to classroom content while they acclimate to an English learning environment.
