EDUC 018. Critical Perspectives
In this course, students will strengthen their critical reading, writing, and thinking skills by examining a selected theme for the semester. The course is designed to support the development of critical analysis and reflection in a workshop format, as students read, write, talk, and think together doing projects of significance to learners and institutions, such as schools, and in the interest of civic engagement, engaged scholarship, and social justice. The course will draw upon historical, socio-political, research, and theoretical frameworks to explore questions of engagement, stasis, reform, and change. Students should be prepared to challenge their own positionality and biases and to make space for themselves and one another to sharpen their thinking and, possibly, change their minds. This course may or may not include fieldwork.
