The instructor will provide a variety of learning and assessment opportunities including reflective writings, collaborative dialogue, readings, lectures, examinations, videos, and electronic and print resources.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Attendance/Participation - Students are expected to attend each class session and take an active role in reading, researching, presenting, discussing and applying information related to the course objectives and learner outcomes. The personal experiences of course participants, and input they obtain from others in their schools and communities, are essential elements of course content. Therefore, attendance and active participation in each class meeting is very important. Each student is expected to complete the reading assignments, gather information as required by course activities, complete projects as assigned, and participate as a member of a cooperative learning group if applicable.
Assigned Readings - Students will read the assigned work from the text prior to each class meeting. They will be expected to actively participate in class reflections and discussions regarding the readings by writing a short reflection paper for each of the ten chapters. ((10) Reflections @ 5 points @ = 50 points)
21st Century Highly Effective High School Leader Final Paper - Each student will write a 3-5 page paper (typed double-spaced) describing a 21st century highly effective high school principal… The student will be expected to utilize the experiences and knowledge gained throughout the course and first-hand experiences to support his/her beliefs.

Academic Honesty:As a learning community, the University upholds the highest standards of academic integrity in all its academic activities, by faculty, staff, administrators and students. Academic integrity involves much more than respecting intellectual property rights. It lies at the heart of learning, creativity, and the core values of the University. Those who learn, teach, write, publish, present, or exhibit creative works are advised to familiarize themselves with the requirements of academic integrity and make every effort to avoid possible offenses against it, knowingly or unknowingly.

Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, interpretation, words (even a few), data, statements, illustration or creative work and their presentation as one's own. An offense against plagiarism constitutes a serious academic misconduct. Although offenses against academic integrity can manifest themselves in various ways, the most common forms of offenses are plagiarism and cheating. Plagiarism goes beyond the copying of an entire article. It may include, but is not limited to: copying a section of an article or a chapter from a book, reproduction of an art work, illustration, cartoon, photograph and the like and passing them off as one's own. Copying from the Internet is no less serious an offense than copying from a book or printed article, even when the material is not copyrighted.
Plagiarism also includes borrowing ideas and phrases from, or paraphrasing, someone else's work, published or unpublished, without acknowledging and documenting the source. Acknowledging and documenting the source of an idea or phrase, at the point where it is utilized, is necessary even when the idea or phrase is taken from a speech or conversation with another person.
