As an introduction to the field of cultural studies in education, this class will provide students with critical competencies for working with diverse communities in local and global contexts. In particular, students will examine "critical pedagogy" and cultural responsive practice as important tools for developing sustainable relationships in schools and society. Students will write and share personal stories in the virtual learning community to help them formulate their own philosophies of teaching and learning. In summary, students will explore concepts such as: power, structure, culture, identity, theory, and pedagogy. 


This program will consist of both asynchronous (on your own) and synchronous (live) components. Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
