EDUC 781 - Curriculum, Culture and Politics

Prerequisite, Ph.D. in education major. This course focuses on the contemporary issues, trends, and research findings in Curriculum Studies. A major goal of this course is to stimulate thoughtful practice about and engage in politically sensitive curriculum inquiry. Through our various readings, we will explore ways that politics interfaces and drives educational practice in the United States and what motivates the policies that educators deal with day to day. It also encourages students to take positions on these issues and write about them convincingly using references to support stated arguments. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
