ELAD 615: Internship in School Leadership
This internship is the culminating activity for students completing the Master of Arts in Educational Leadership. Through the internship, students have an opportunity to become immersed in leadership practice and to appropriate the importance of instructional leadership in the creation of a learning environment at their school sites. They study effective leadership first-hand, develop and practice instructional leadership skills, and are mentored for a career as a school principal. The intership requires a minimum of 300 hours of supervised standards-based fieldwork under the direction of a university professor and school mentor. Upon the completion of the work, students develop a portfolio that includes artifacts as well as analysis and reflective commentary that is presented at a dialogue session.
