BE5053 - Advocacy and Leadership

Credits: 3
This course addresses growth opportunities for teacher leaders as they increase their awareness of educational policy and laws at the local, state, and national level and the roles of school leaders, boards of education, legislators, and other stakeholders in establishing these policies. Emphasis is placed on building leadership and advocacy knowledge and skills required to share information on policies and trends with colleagues; to work collaboratively with colleagues, student families and community members to advocate for student and teacher rights, needs, and resources, and to represent and advocate for the teaching profession and their students outside the classroom.
