Abstract

In Massachusetts the role of both English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers and content teachers has changed in response to the RETELL Initiative of 2012. While K-12 content and special education teachers are now required to add the Sheltered English Instruction (SEI) Endorsement to their portfolio, the requirements for earning an ESL teaching license are becoming less rigorous. This poster provides a visual description of the current requirements of ESL teacher education in comparison to the past decade. Finally, a Venn diagram is used to highlight the intersection of ESL and content instruction.
