The Capstone Experience is an job-embedded, independent project based on an action research model. It is the final step in the Mounds View Certification Program. These modules will provide direction and guidelines for all the key components of the Capstone Experience.
The focus of this module is the design, implementation, and refinement of instructional models which effectively address the identified range of academic needs of students in the elementary, middle and high school programs. Through readings, application-based learning activities, and presentations by the instructor, implementers of the current delivery models in the District, and other resource persons participants will develop understanding and skills needed for contributing to the effective implementation of models in their schools .
The module will also include forum discussion of instructional delivery models on the “micro” level—the instructional program within individual classrooms.
