EDCS 6010 - Education & Cultural Diversity

Examines the historical and contemporary issues of diversity in education. Schools and classrooms do not exist in a socio-political vacuum. Premised on how education has been and continues to be a site, if not a tool, for power and privilege as well as resistance and social justice. In addition to leading students through a self-examination of their own assumptions and beliefs surrounding diversity, explores historical events and legal cases related to diverse students in schools; theories of identity and culture and how these theories impact constructions of diversity and multicultural education; and strategies for effectively engaging issues of diversity in educational contexts. Offers an opportunity to engage in diversity education in the larger community through a service learning experience.
