EDUC 61603 The School Community: Examining Diversity and Bias

Changing and improving relationships with the school community and families through transformative experiences can result in improved academic performance in students. Examining our own biases in systematic ways can assist us in change within the school setting. The National Board Certification process is a rigorous, performance-based professional learning opportunity designed to improve impact on student learning and analysis and reflection on classroom teaching. As a future teacher leader, this course and process will contribute to the ability to reform education in the classroom, school, district, and community at large as part of Phase I, Architecture of Accomplished Teaching. There are no prerequisites for this course, however, the Teacher Leader Program is a cohort model. It is expected that the courses will be taken in the required sequence.
