EDC 115 Exploring Education

3 Credit(s) CS
Through active engagement in school and non-school settings linked to course readings, students will explore contemporary issues in education and reflect on their own experience as learners. Using film, observations, experiential activities and readings we will look at education in the U.S. through multiple lenses–historical, philosophical, sociological, political, and personal. We will ask questions about the purpose of schools in a democracy, what it means to “learn” something, and what makes an “educated” person. We will explore problems of educational access and equity and consider the climates and conditions that support or limit learning and the work of educators. Three lecture hours per week. 15 hours of field work required.  Not open to students who have received credit for EDU115.
