Credits: 1 - 6
This course is repeatable.
This course is designed as the culminating field experience for enrolled advanced graduate students seeking New Hampshire Department of Education (NHDOE) Certification as a K-12 Curriculum Administrator. The Practicum is a performance-based analysis of the role of the K-12 Curriculum Administrator in practice with emphasis on changes in society and schools as well as with reference to job responsibilities of the position – the art and science of school system leadership. Students enrolling in the practicum are expected to spend time interacting with a practicing curriculum administrator and completing a practicum project to fulfill requirements meeting state certification. Practicum readings and activities are designed to provide experiences relevant to building a required certification portfolio that demonstrates formal knowledge of executive leadership and management, dispositions (using that knowledge to reflect on experiences), and performances (school-based applications) as described in the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) Standards for School Leaders and New Hampshire Education Standards for Curriculum Administrator. Pre-requisites: Completion of required Curriculum Administrator coursework and permission of instructor.
