Instructor: Megan Allen
Course Dates: July 9 – August 13, 2014
Class Meeting Times: Monday and Wednesday, 10 am – 12:00 pm
Explore the changing role of educators in a colorful political climate. Education is in the midst of a transformation, and we will learn from and with the teacher leaders who are leading the charge. With readings and video-conferencing with National Board-certified teachers, bloggers, and state teachers of the year, we will discuss how innovative teachers are transforming the profession in issues of equity, evaluation, compensation, curriculum, collaboration, and more. Students will also identify their leadership skills, then build their areas of expertise and develop a plan for potential future leadership.
