This discussion is your opportunity to develop community with your class peers and instructor. Congratulations on the continuation of your capstone experience! Through this course you will continue your work on your action research study and also learn about how important leadership is to the differentiated educational environment. As part of a holistic program design to ensure continuity within the program and your studies, this course is intended to be a continuation of EDU671. Your capstone experience will continue after this course when you enroll in EDU695.
