VERY CRITICAL PART OF MY GRADE: The responses must be in a narrative format (complete sentences, paragraphs, etc.) – no bulleting. Paper should be 4 full pages, double-spaced, 12 pt. Times New Roman.
Information: on the top of the toolbar, select “My Bookshelf”, then select launch mobile app/site, then you should be able to access Fowler (2013) Policy Studies for Educational Leaders…
Please note: I can use outside scholarly resources, however I am expected to use class readings: Fowler, F.C. (2013) Policy Studies for Educational Leaders: An Introduction. (4th ed.) in any literature to support my case. Failure to use class readings will count against the amount of points I can earn.
