Course Topic/Dates/Assignments: Ok, we have decided on our grading scale and projects to get us there. Remember, project wise, you can mix and match as you like, accumulating points as you go. Also remember, that work is to be research based, APA style and represent assimilated processes. The Standards that apply to our class are housed with standards 2 and 3. The standards utilize the word facilitate as their platform. Taking that stance indicates the process of management; that is what our goal is: to learn how to understand, identify, assimilate, apply, and facilitate the processes of school supervision.
