3 Credit(s)
This course will enable prospective Catholic school principals to gain the necessary expertise to become leaders in the curriculum development process.  They will explore how to provide Catholic school students with an “academically rigorous and doctrinally sound program” by designing curricular experiences which are research-based and infused with Catholic faith and traditions.  Students will develop a framework for designing, implementing and monitoring a standards-based curriculum aligned with instruction, assessment and 21st century skills in order to achieve academic excellence.  The integration of technology into instructional and assessment practices will be emphasized. Methods for gathering and analyzing data on multiple school-wide assessments will be integral to an understanding of school improvement efforts.
