EDU 607: School-Based Experience and School Improvement Action Research (3 credits)

Prior to the start of the course the Principal Candidate will coordinate with the Midland Advisor/Instructor and School Administrator Mentor and develop and submit a plan for the school-based experience with a minimum of 25 clock hours preferably in his/her home school (must be accredited or approved in Nebraska). The plan should detail observations, participation and leadership in activities related to school improvement. The majority of these hours should provide experiences that are related to and will enhance the Principal Candidates action research. The Principal Candidate will work through the initial planning process for the Principal Action Research Report (PARR) including crafting a working proposal, formally seeking required support/approvals and feedback, outlining possible research questions, writing an initial review of literature, selecting the action/ intervention including suggested methods and data collection techniques.
