C I 5340 - Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies (3)


When Offered: Fall
The purpose of this course is to prepare educators to recognize, value, and build upon students’ funds of knowledge. Using culturally sustaining pedagogy as a guiding framework, the course will introduce participants to theories, research, and practices that foster linguistic and cultural maintenance as a way of promoting academic success for all students. Participants will examine and critique schooling practices that position minoritized students from deficit perspectives, and will work alongside students, families, schools and/or community organizations to develop culturally sustaining curriculum projects that build on students’ funds of knowledge.
Fieldwork required.
