EDEL 775 A, B Interacting with the Environment for Inquiry (1, 1)
In the second course of this sequence, students implement projects begun in ED 774 dealing with the complexities and competing interests of different constituencies and cultures within the environment. The project involves the following: 1) Applying a needs assessment and steps to be taken for implementation; 2) Working with diverse individuals responsible for project completion; 3) Identifying and obtaining resources needed for project completion; 4) Establishing a timeline; and 5) Determining how formative evaluations are linked to the goal of the inquiry. Students develop the project/inquiry within the context of the legal, educational mission, knowledge of teaching and learning, economic, political, and social environment of the school district.
