Prerequisite: Enrollment is restricted to students in the Master of Arts in Secondary English Education program or with department permission.

Through research and reading, collegial discussion and debate, reflection and writing, students develop a thorough and nuanced understanding of these issues and their implications for multiethnic districts and schools as well as for English and literacy classrooms and instruction. Students examine research on teacher-leadership and consider ways to apply this learning to their districts, schools and the broader professional community.
