This course will address the four themes of the conceptual framework for the UK professional education unit: research, reflection, learning, and leading. Students will be given the opportunity to review, analyze, discuss, and apply research from diverse perspectives in education. Reflection will also be integrated into students’ learning opportunities through the production of written essays, group discussion and media production to help students take advantage of the analytical and problem-solving skills that comprise critical professional reflection on one’s own teaching. This course emphasizes the commitment of the professional education unit to ensure that its graduates move into their professional lives equipped for life-long learning as educators who will be active in leading colleagues in their schools, districts, and professional organizations. The ultimate goal in addressing these four themes is to produce teacher leaders who work together to improve student learning among diverse populations and improve education in Kentucky and beyond. Additionally, students will be prepared to serve a more diverse population of learners through exploration of hw all people learn.
Expectations and Grading
How do I make an A? Here is the question on everyone's mind. there are between (5-7) assignments that are used to determine your grade in the class (why not a fixed number you ask? Well depending on how the class progresses, sometimes I need to jettison a unit). For each of those assignments I will score them with an A, B or C. If you get two A's AND at least a B on the final project you get an A. Conversely, if you get two C's you've earned a C. C work can be redone provided you have earned the right to do so through demonstration of the correct process related behaviors (showing up to class prepared, completing practice assignments, etc.). Criteria for achieving an A will be provided with each assignment.
