HON 418 - Critical Pedagogy: Teaching to Transgress


Prerequisite, acceptance to the University Honors Program, or consent of instructor. In this course, we will focus on different models of teachers for the purpose of challenging the oppressive structures of the social order so as to build a deeper and stronger democracy in which all peoples can participate and have a voice. We will also give credit to those institutions and values that need to be upheld and defended but we will not shirk from challenging institutions and social relations that are unfair or unjust. In other words, we seek to "speak truth to power." The course is designed to challenge fundamental preconceptions of what a teacher should be or how a teaching should be conveyed. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
