EDEL 618 - Educational Leadership for Diverse Learners

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Lecture
Prerequisites: Admission to Educational Leadership program.
This course examines the concept of achievement for all students and the role that effective school administrators play in promoting achievement for all students.  While effective and appropriate learning opportunities for all students is paramount in any school, achievement for diverse learners (learners with disabilities, learners living in poverty, learners for whom English is not the primary language, learners from minority racial and/or ethnic groups, learners whose instruction should be accelerated, along with other specific diverse learning groups needing support) is the primary focus for this course.  Attention will be given to the administrator’s role in promoting the establishment of a school culture and instructional program that supports learning for all. Federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and guidelines and specific researched practices related to instruction for all learners will be highlighted.  School improvement planning to enhance diverse learners’ achievement will be detailed.
