Course Description:
During the course of six weeks MOOC participants will work to design a “narrative” about the school they are creating. This narrative lays out the “mosaic” of school creation puzzle pieces (eg.: purpose, student mix, pedagogy, etc) to the varied prospective audiences that the participant will encounter.

Participants will...
...exit with a basic understanding of what it takes to open a school.
...connect to an active, collegial community of new school creators that provides ubiquitous support and encouragement.
...create a basic narrative structure that can be presented in multiple formats, to multiple and diverse audiences.

Course Begins: January 12th, 2014
