EDUC 014. Pedagogy and Power: An Introduction to Education
Schools are complex institutions, central to any society. Schools are sites of teaching and learning, places where inequalities are maintained or challenged, and institutions within which children and their teachers live out the daily realities of national political agendas. This course explores major questions in educational policy, theory, and practice. Students read original source materials from multiple disciplines, write, discuss, and complete fieldwork in area schools as an introduction to the interdisciplinary and expansive field of educational studies. EDUC 014 or the first-year seminar EDUC 014F, is required for students pursuing teacher certification.
