This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to the scientific exploration of the natural world through a review of the fundamental discoveries and principles of physical sciences, life sciences, and earth and space sciences. The course is organized around common principles of scientific inquiry, such as observation and experiment. As we discuss various concepts in the physical and life sciences, we will frame our work by issues such as what types of questions can be answered through scientific investigation, how such an investigation is designed, and the insights and limitations offered by experimental data. Once students understand the nature of science and its practice, we will explore some of the overarching themes that appear throughout the scientific disciplines, such as systems, models, constancy and change, time and space scales, evidence, and explanation. This course extends the traditional classroom lecture/ discussion structure by requiring an experiential component to engage students in scientific investigations. It is our belief that through readings, activities, and discussions, students will consider science in its proper light as a unique way of knowing and understanding the natural world.

LEAD912-P1 Principals Institute Supervised Fieldwork/ Advisement 2 STAFF See Advisor for Dates & Times
This course meets New York State certification requirements for School Building Leadership (SBL) internship experiences. Through close work with a faculty advisor and peers, participants apply their learning from coursework to their field experiences, integrating theory and practice as they reflect on their own professional development. Interns work with a site supervisor and are given substantial school-based responsibilities that involve direct interaction and involvement with staff, students, families, and community leaders. Participants develop the capacity to build and support a positive school culture, build teams, enlist collaboration, and plan and sustain change efforts. Graduate students in advisement participate in small-group sessions with their advisors over 18 months. Participants also serve in a summer internship at a site that is different from their usual work site. At the end of supervised fieldwork, each candidate presents a comprehensive portfolio of internship experiences which meets the program's Integrative Master's Project requirement.
