EDUC 1511 - Local Social Science: Public Education and Schooling in the U.S.


All Local Theme courses explore the central, unifying question of what it means to be a member of the “local” community in which we live. Through the study of the experiences of different peoples, cultures, and communities in our city, our region, or our nation students will be able to better understand themselves in the context of the complex and diverse society in which we live. As education impacts us all and schools are sites of opportunity, change, and even controversy, this class will explore major interdisciplinary issues of education in America including social, historical and philosophical ideas pertaining to education. This class is designed for any student seeking to explore PreK-12 education and will include experiential opportunities to learn more about schools and advocacy opportunities for education as a change agent within society. May not be taken for credit and for a grade if credit has been received for EDUC 2100 .
