EDD 632 3 Lecture Hours; 1 Conference Hour; 4 Credits
Why do schools tend to be frustrating places for educators and students? How can we make schools better? This course introduces the foundations disciplines of sociology, philosophy and history. Drawing on the content and methodological tools of these disciplines, we explore the dynamic social, political, and economic trends inside and outside of schools, including cultural differences, testing, bureaucracy, classroom dynamics, politics and power, and school communities.
Prerequisite: Matriculation in Sequence I of the Graduate Elementary Education Program or EDD 602 or equivalent
