EDEL 560 Action Research/Internship II
Prerequisites: This course should be taken during the last two semesters of the program.
This internship course is an integrated part of the Master’s program. The entire emphasis of the internship is to provide a well thought out, planned “hands on” learning experience for students which bridges the gap between pedagogy and practice. This course will provide prospective principals with practical experience in educational leadership tasks, issues and responsibilities under the close supervision and direction of clinical affiliates, which will also include effective supervisory skills and the teacher/staff evaluation process.
This course will include the development of a needs-based, action research project, approved by the on-site principal and the university professor that is applicable to the needs of the school. Interns will complete 115 hours of on-site internship experience under the direction and supervision of the on-site administrator. Students develop an inclusive portfolio which includes artifacts from the entire graduate experience.
