Six to seven hours are offered each semester to a Curriculum Specialist cohort.
To find class schedules go to distance.appstate.edu and follow the online registration instructions.
Students are placed with competent administrative/supervisory personnel and will observe, participate in, and evaluate curriculum issues existing in public schools, public school systems, or other appropriate agencies. The internship consists of 80 hours.
Product of Learning
The Product of Learning (POL) is intended as a culminating experience and will serve both to encapsulate the accumulated programmatic reflections developed by the student over time and to demonstrate to the profession the increased knowledge and competencies that have been acquired from the program of study.
Students are required to present their POL to their advisor and one other guest with a masters or above in education during their final semester in the Curriculum Specialist program. These presentations take place on the ASU campus. Students must upload their POLs to TK20 before graduation.
- Hours for the POL: The three credit hours for the Product of Learning are divided into 1-hour courses over the last three semesters of the Curriculum Specialist program.
- Rubric for the POL
- Scale comes from NCDPI http://www.ncpublicschools.org/effectiveness-model/ncees/
You must apply to graduate https://graduate.appstate.edu/enrolled-students/graduation/graduation-ap...
As the Graduate School states:
Choose the term in which you will graduate, not the term you will participate in the commencement ceremony. If the last semester in which you will take classes and finish all your requirements is Summer Session I or II, then you should list summer as your graduation term.
Note: Students should always apply to graduate in the summer due to the schedule. Students may participate in the following December commencement ceremony.
