EDU 2100 - Foundations of Educational Equity (3)


When Offered: Fall; Spring; Summer Session
An interdisciplinary course within the Teacher Education Professional Core designed to help students develop a critical perspective on public schooling and its socioeconomic, political, cultural and historical role in society. The course focuses on ways in which schools can and must engage with and support all students, and how components of identity and positionality, such as gender, social class, race and ethnicity, and sexual orientation, affect our educational experiences and trajectories. The course draws on findings and methods from philosophy, sociology, anthropology, history, economics, psychology and political science. Frameworks from these arenas can be used to critically consider issues of equity and inclusion in classrooms, ideally culminating in the cultivation of learning spaces dedicated to democracy, human dignity, and agency.
A minimum grade of “C” (2.0) must be earned by Teacher Education majors. Must be taken prior to admission to Teacher Education.
