EDU 688: Internship in Curriculum Administration
This three-semester, 9-credit course (3 credits each semester) serves as the capstone experience in the educational leadership program for aspiring curriculum coordinators. The internship is designed to immerse the student in the every day tasks of the curriculum coordinator, proving an opportunity for the student to actually apply the skills and knowledge gained throughout the program. The early focus of the course is on the internship in a district/central office setting designed jointly by the student, the internship supervisor, and a curriculum coordinator. Out of the internship activities, students complete a journal, develop a leadership platform (portfolio), conduct an investigation on an aspect of financial management related to special education and a study of community demographics and formulate a leadership project based on an issue of curriculum/instructional importance to the district/school. Each student is required to produce a written report on the leadership project and to present it at the conclusion of the course. Prerequisite: Open to matriculated students at the end of their Educational Leadership degree program. Cr 9.
