Prerequisite: 01361 or 01362.

This course is designed to introduce students to the professional expectations for classroom, school, and community leadership, including the tasks, the responsibilities, and the importance of the context and the power relationships associated with leadership roles. Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of the nature of leadership by integrating theory, research, and practice. They will be purposefully mentored into a leadership role within a school in which they are student teaching. They may also become involved in leadership roles in other areas of the school community, for example, team teaching and school planning, as well as in a variety of extracurricular activities and school-and community-based committees.

4 lecture hours per week, one term.
