|Abstract: ||Educ 451 and 460 serve as the capstone courses for the Minor in Educational Studies. Students are expected to exhibit both scholarship and dedication to their choice of topics. In addition, it is expected that the student will consistently demonstrate and model the purpose of the Education Program and the Vision of Rhodes College. The course is normally scheduled for each Spring Semester but will be offered during the Fall Semester if student demand is sufficient.
The purposes of the capstone experience will vary as to the choice of activities (research or internship) as well as to the topics selected, but several basic purposes/objectives will remain constant --- to provide students with the opportunity to:
1. Explore, with some depth, an area of interest in education and if possible, relate the exploration to a particular INTASC Core Principle.
2. Acquire additional knowledge and skills which could assist the student’s entrance into a graduate education program or work environment.
3. Gain insight into the work of professional educators (especially requisite dispositions) and to explore a possible vocational choice.
4. Combine both library and field experience in addressing the topic of interest.
5. Discuss this topic on a regular basis with a professional educator and with peers.
6. Present the results of the project with others in both oral and written form.
In addition, the seminar topics will emphasize leadership, especially in regard to quality and school improvement. Toward the end of the semester, students will be asked to engage in an assessment of the Rhodes College Education Program.|
