Life History of Curriculum Leadership
Write a paper in which you highlight a curriculum issue/problem and its context that you draw from a life history account of an educator/administrator (other than you). Generate data about their experience with curriculum past or present, their perspectives on what is/not taught (curriculum), analyze their (partial) life history account, research the issue, address any concerns with regard to diversity and/or ethics, and provide recommendations. Rely heavily on course material, including information life history methods.
-Context/Learning Environment: Explain a curriculum issue in context and relative to diversity and/or equity.
-Indicator: Identify a/n indicator(s) of curriculum leadership toward which you are developing (see Appendix).
-Decision-Making (leadership development): Provide a recommendation to yourself and others.
-Data: Use multiple sources of data to get/tell the story: course material, (i.e., life history methods), research, scholarship, and participant materials (i.e., social networking info, photos, videos, audio, professional artifacts)
– Communication: Produce a life history of high technical & conceptual quality (media and/or written).
