ABSTRACT  
This paper describes the transformation of a traditional education leadership 
research course into a more meaningful experience that provides students authentic 
leadership opportunities focused on improving student and school performance. 
Action research was employed to facilitate the course re-design. The new course 
leads students from problem identification through action planning, implementation, 
and evaluation to address an academic challenge they have identified in their 
schools. Results include authentic leadership experiences for students and a 
re-sequenced, strengthened education leadership program curriculum.
