ED 699 - Pedagogical, Social, and Cultural Implications

2 credits
This third course is designed as both a scholarly and reflective opportunity where candidates ground their ethnography within a theoretical framework. The course helps students access the larger social and political context of schooling by analyzing issues such as society's perception of schools; the racial, economic, and linguistic pressures placed on parents and their children; and the policies and trends that impact learning. The candidates synthesize their experiences within schools and write about how they will work to create equitable learning environments in the future. Section IV of the ethnography project helps candidates synthesize previous readings by analyzing, supporting and discussing their data.
