Teacher Inquiry/Capstone Portfolio

The Portfolio is a sequence of student-made products that evidence the proficiencies gained through previous coursework regarding curriculum planning, lesson deliver and assessment, classroom management, issues, related to equal access for exceptional and otherwise underserved school children, and aspects of teachers' careers as professionals involved in life-long learning, community building and empowerment, and the promotion of 21st century skills. The course can be taken for 3 credits or extended for an additional 3 (total of 6) when a given topic of additional research, resulting in a formal paper of no fewer than 20 pages is negotiated with the instructor.
