EDD 623 The Cultural Context of Thinking and Learning (Effective Fall 2011)
3 lecture hours; 1 conference hour; 4 credits
The wide range of cultural traditions represented in New York City's schools necessitates understanding that goes beyond sympathetic tolerance. This course will address perceived differences that adversely affect students and differences that are important for understanding their learning and development. Areas of focus will include: differences in cultural emphasis and cultural practices, consideration of schooling and literacy as catalysts for particular kinds of cognitive change; and the effects of a changing media landscape upon child development.
