MIEA 520 - Strategies for Change in International Schools

This course focuses on structuring schools for improvement and student success. A rethinking of curriculum and instruction, including the basic tenets held about what we should teach, how we should teach it, and how we assess what students learn, is the cornerstone for restructuring schools. Students will add to the ongoing dialogue about what, exactly, should characterize an international school or an international education in varied settings, whether multinational or culturally homogenous. The course will emphasize the role of the mission statement and the international school accreditation process.
