Assignment Description
The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.
At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. Two additional responses are required after Friday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.
The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.
Discussion Board Question Details
Students are stakeholders in their own educational process. Student initiative is often forgotten in the management of classrooms and curricula. Use the library or other research materials to review case studies or application descriptions in which students have been empowered to manage their individual learning and the flow and process of their education. Some guiding key words that may help your search are as follows:

Constructivism
Self-directed learning
Student empowerment
Unschooling
Home schooling

Following your research into the student’s role as stakeholder, answer the following questions:

How are students involved in the educational management process?
Why do many educational leaders consider students to be stakeholders in the educational management process?
Which leadership style or styles do you think will work best when working with students, either as a teacher-leader or as an administrative leader? Why?
As a leader, what tools can you use to help students develop their self-management capabilities, such as reflective practice.

In your own words, post a substantive response to the Discussion Board question(s) and comment on other postings. Your response should address the DB question(s) and move the conversation forward. You will be graded on the quality of your postings, including mastery of the concept as well as critical thinking. If asked for your opinion, do not simply state that it is a good or bad idea; elaborate on your reasons and argument. Include enough detail to substantiate your thinking as well as your position on the questions or comments.
