Assessments in this course are designed to correlate to the rigor and expectations addressed within the
College of Education and Behavioral Sciences Graduate Comprehensive Examination.
It is the students individual responsibility to be aware of his/her current grade standing in the class and to
confer with the professor regarding any assessment concerns/questions during designated office hours.
Student Appraisal
Students will complete faculty appraisal forms online as regularly administered by the University.

EDAD 6291/6292 Internship in the Principalship

Class Policies
Absence and Tardy Policies
In the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, any student who does not attend at least
75% of the scheduled class sessions will receive a grade of F for the course, regardless of
performance on other assessments such as tests, quizzes, papers, or projects. This means that
more than 2 absences will result in a failing grade. "Regular attendance in class is important for
student success, and it is university policy that students must attend class. Absences are recorded
beginning from the first class session after the student has enrolled in the course. Professors are
not obligated to allow students to make up work they miss due to unexcused absences.
Professors may apply additional attendance policies as appropriate to individual courses.
Likewise, the college or school may also apply additional attendance requirements as necessary.
Please see the catalog currently in use for the universitys policy on classroom absences caused
in the course of student representation of the university, such as athletics, chorale, and mock trial
activities."

Attendance and participation is expected at every class session.


Two tardies are permitted for all classes.
Medical notes for excused absences will be accepted only one week after the
absence.
Absences, tardies, and early departure from class are strongly discouraged. It is
very important to be on time for class and to stay for the entire class session.
Your performance in this course will be better if you attend classes and participate
in the discussions. This course will be highly interactive and you will need to be
in class. If you arrive late or leave early, you will NOT receive full credit for
participating or for attendance. If you do work not pertaining to this class during
class time, you will not receive full credit for participating.

Academic Accommodations
Students needing learning accommodations should inform the professor immediately and consult
the Academic Accommodations section of the HBU Classroom Policy posted on Blackboard.
Documentation of Difficulties: If an education student fails to demonstrate an acceptable level
of performance on one or more professional educator standards during any class or field
experience, a form is filed in the Education Office (a PMID: Progress Monitoring & Intervention
Documentation). If two such forms occur, a conference is held in which difficulties are
identified and means for improvement are explored. [Sometimes specific interventions will be
required.] A third form will result in a committee hearing to review difficulties and means for
improvement and to determine conditions for continuance in the program. Professional
standards include knowledge, skills and dispositions.
Late Work
Late work will be penalized. You should not miss any exams. If you are sick, you need to notify
the professor in advance. The professor reserves the right to administer a different exam, deduct

EDAD 6291/6292 Internship in the Principalship

22
points for taking the exam late, and/or schedule the makeup for a later date. Missing an exam
without giving prior notice will result in a zero for that test, with no makeup.
All assignments are expected to be completed in their entirety by the beginning of class on the
due date, even if the student is not in class. Late work is strongly discouraged. Work may be
submitted late ONLY (with proper documentation for illness or other emergency situations)
within the following TWO calendar days, including weekends, for a maximum grade value of 80.
No work will be accepted after that deadline passes. As professionals it is imperative to
complete responsibilities and tasks in a timely, effective manner. [If work is returned for
revision, it is expected to be re-submitted as directed by the professor regarding the due date and
the maximum grade value of the revised effort.]
Missed Tests
All tests should be taken on the day and at the time when they are scheduled. Make-up tests will
be given ONLY when the instructor is notified prior to the exam, and there is a documented
excused reason for missing the exam. Legitimate reasons include documented illness death in the
family, etc. A make-up will then be completed at a time mutually agreed upon by both the
professor and student-as soon as possible after the exam date. Any unexcused absence on the test
day will result in a grade of zero for the particular test with no opportunity for a make-up test.
Electronic Device Use in the Classroom
You must turn off all electronic devices in your possession to avoid distractions to the
climate of the classroom. This includes cell phones. These should remain out of sight
during instructional
Answering cell phones, reading or responding to text messages during class will lower
your participation grade. If this is a continuing distraction, the student will be asked to
leave class and this will be reflected in the course grade.
No cell phones will be allowed in the classroom for exams. Should you forget, you may
leave any cell phones with the professor during the testing time. Any cell phone that goes
off in a students possession during an exam will be an automatic F on the exam.
No recording devices will be allowed in the classroom.
The use of personal laptop computers is only permitted at appropriate times when class
note taking is beneficial, not during any activities and/or presentations.
The use of the Internet and computer for personal means during class time will result in a
reduction in the class participation grade and loss of class use of the computer for the
remainder of the semester.
Academic Integrity
HBU views any act of academic dishonesty as a violation of the very heart of the nature of the
University as expressed in the catalogue. Academic dishonesty occurs when a student submits
the work or record of someone else as his/her own or when a student has special information for
use in an evaluation that is not available to other students in the same activity. It will result in a
zero on the assignment in question and will be reported to the Dean of the School of Education.
Appeal procedures and additional information are included in the HBU Online Catalogue. A
tutorial has been created that explains behaviors you may engage in, but do not recognize as
EDAD 6291/6292 Internship in the Principalship

23
unethical. Its purpose is to inform and educate you to identify these practices and, therefore,
avoid them. You will find the tutorial in a Blackboard class named Academic Integrity, and you
are encouraged to complete the tutorial before priority registration for the next semester.
Children in Classroom
In almost all instances, children are not allowed in the classroom nor are they allowed to be on
campus unattended. Class sessions are for enrolled students only unless other arrangements are
approved by the instructor in advance. For safety reasons, children are prohibited from all
laboratories.
Classroom Behavior Expectations
The classroom environment is to be conducive to learning and is under the authority of the
instructor. In order to assure that all students have the opportunity to gain from the time spent in
class, students are expected to demonstrate civil behavior in the classroom and show appropriate
respect for the instructor and other students. Inappropriate behavior toward the instructor, in or
out of the classroom, may result in a directive to the offending student to leave the classroom or
the course entirely.
Classroom behaviors that disturb the teaching-learning experiences include the following
behaviors: activated cellular phone or other device, demands for special treatment, frequent
episodes of leaving and then returning to the class, excessive tardiness, leaving class early,
making offensive remarks or disrespectful comments or gestures to the instructor or other
students, missing deadlines, prolonged chattering, sleeping, arriving late to class, dominating
discussions, shuffling backpacks or notebooks, disruption of group work, and overt
inattentiveness. It is at the discretion of the instructor as to whether laptops will be allowed for
use in the classroom.
*Addendum: Classroom Behavior Expectations
Working on or reading of other materials and/or projects during this designated class time will
not be permitted and will result in the lowering of the class participation grade. Group work
demands a high level of accountability and collaboration. Therefore, the professor reserves the
right to adjust and/or remove group members from small group work, if needed. If a student is
removed from a working group for any reason, the student is expected to complete all
components of the task/assignment entirely on an individual basis on the original due date with a
reduction in grading points as is warranted. Drinks and snack food are permitted in class as long
as all trash is removed.

Early Alert
To ensure that every student takes full advantage of the educational and learning opportunities,
HBU has implemented an Academic Early Alert Referral System (EARS). Your professor will
issue an Early Alert to your advisor if you he or she believes you struggling in the course. You
should meet with your advisor and professor to discuss new strategies for successful completion
of the course.
EDAD 6291/6292 Internship in the Principalship

Email Policy
All university and class email communication will be sent to your HBU email account. You are
responsible for checking this frequently. If you choose, you may reroute your HBU email to
another email address. Your emails should be in a professional format with correct spelling,
capitalization, and grammar.

Grievance Procedures
The Academic Grievance Policy may be found in the catalog currently in use, in the Academic
section of the HBU Forms section of the HBU Portal, and on the Registrars page on the HBU
Website.
Incomplete Course Request
Only the dean of the college or school may grant incompletes and only to students who have a
major documented emergency in the last few days of a semester. Students with excessive
absences, which will result in failing the course, will not be allowed to take the final exam nor be
eligible to receive an incomplete.

Learning Disabilities/Academic Accommodations


Houston Baptist University complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504
of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 regarding students with disabilities. Any student who needs
learning accommodations should inform the professor immediately at the beginning of the
semester that he/she will be requesting accommodations. In order to request and establish
academic accommodations, the student should contact the Coordinator for Learning Disability
Services at 504@hbu.edu to schedule an appointment to discuss and request academic
accommodation services. Academic Accommodations must be applied for and written each
semester. If academic accommodations are approved, a Letter of Accommodations will then be
sent to the professor(s). Please refer to the website, www.hbu.edu/504 for all accommodation
policies and procedures.
Students are required to read the University Classroom Policy addendum to this course
syllabus that is included on Blackboard. In addition to the class policies listed here, it
includes basic class policies that apply in all HBU classes

COURSE ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
Syllabus Statement
I am aware of all topics described in the course syllabus. These include, but are not limited to the following:
course description; course sequence in the curriculum and prerequisite information;

instructor information and learning resources;

relation to the mission of the University and to the goals and purposes of the College of Education and
Behavioral Sciences;
course learning objectives;

state and national standards covered (TExES competencies, IDA standards, etc.);

topical outline and learning strategies;;

assessment for learning: requirements & grading standards;

HBU CLASS POLICIES: the University document posted on Blackboard;

additional policies for this class: attendance, late work, missed tests and electronic devices;

the possibility of changes to the syllabus. [The content of this syllabus and the attached agenda are subject to
change at the discretion of the professor.]

Professional Integrity Statement


To maintain and uphold the highest level of professional integrity and honesty, cheating and plagiarizing are not
allowed. . If a student cheats and/or plagiarizes, then the student will receive a 0 for the assignment and/or fail
the course
Cheating is a catch-all term for not doing your own work. Any attempt during a test to consult with notes or another
person or to look at anothers test constitutes cheating. If answers are shared in any way, both students will receive the
same penalty for cheating. Using stolen tests or borrowed tests (any test that is not readily available to all members of
the class) to study for an exam is cheating. Within the broader view of cheating is the idea of using someone elses work
in place of your own. This is called plagiarism and is not allowed.
DO NOT:
copy another persons paper/project/work or part of that and turn it in as your own;

copy a paper/project from the Internet and turn them in as your own;

copy another paper/project (or cut and paste parts of Internet articles), make changes to it, and submit it as your
own;
include the work of others without documentation/reference (If seven or more words are taken directly from
another source it must be quoted and referenced.);
submit a paper/project or large parts of a paper/project you have done for another class at HBU or another
institution to this class. (Always get a professors approval before using a prior work or topic from a different
class.);
have someone write parts or all of your paper/project/work

share your work with others; and,

change references or make up references.

By signing this page, I affirm that I have read and understand the contents of this course Syllabus Statement, the
Professional Integrity Statement, and the University Class Policies. I understand that at any time during the
course, I may request clarification, if needed.

Demographic Study of Campus (Internship I)

The objective of the demographic study is to review data and statistics for the targeted campus. The study
should enable the candidate to understand the school and community and potential areas for improvement
(ELCC 1.4). The demographic study provides a professional development tool for candidates to identify
areas to improve student achievement (ELCC 2.4). This demographic analysis identifies potential
community stakeholders and facilitates the stewarding of a school vision that capitalizes on diversity
(ELCC 1.5).
The demographic study will focus on a selected campus. The study should include a summary of
demographic data of the school, a brief history of the school, political and geographical characteristics of
the school attendance area, background of the professional and support staff the school, and an overview
of student performance data for the school.

i. Participant observations (walk-throughs). You will be a participant observer in
assessing the culturally proficient your classroom or school currently is. You will
be given a cultural proficiency observation checklist to guide you in your walkthrough observations and anecdotal note-taking. Walk-throughs must be made
on two or more separate occasions and in different places (teachers lounge,
hallways, cafeteria, playground, classrooms, etc.). See audit checklist in the back
of this manual Appendix A.
ii. Complete a Cultural Proficiency Action Plan based on your audit
findings.
b. Once data has been collected and analyzed from your culture audit, you will use this
information to identify strengths and weaknesses in your classrooms or schools policies,
