The course learning activities require you to apply what you have learned in this course to specific policy and governance issues or questions facing education today. While each activity contains some questions to prompt and guide your thinking, they are designed to illustrate the sort of things you should be thinking about in responding to the question. You need not answer each question and you should feel to address questions that are related to the topic but not included in the prompt.
In terms of expectations, your answers should be roughly 4 pages (double-spaced; 10 or 12 point font). While I am interested in hearing your thoughts and reflections, draw on the assigned readings where appropriate to support and/or illustrate your points. You may make use of other scholarly resources but you are not required to do so. (And be sure to use reliable sources; peer-reviewed articles are best.) Follow SPA format for all references to assigned readings and other resources. (Be especially sure to use quotation marks for all direct quotes. Also tell me the page number where the quoted material appears. Page numbers should also be used when paraphrasing a particular point.)
Learning Activity 3:
Think back over your experience in education and identify an event or process related to school governance and policy implementation in your individual school or district that illustrates the challenges inherent in implementing policy within schools. (This may be an example of a successful policy implementation, an unsuccessful policy implementation, or something you think was a mix of the two.) How did those within the school community respond to the new policy or change? To the extent that the implementation was successful or unsuccessful, what factors related to change in schools were important? Based on what you have learned in the readings in this course, how could leaders have approached the event or process differently in order to support the implementation?
