Course Description

EDUC 120
Urban Education
Fall

This course focuses on various perspectives on urban education, conditions for teaching and learning in urban public schools, and current theories of pedagogy in urban classrooms along with a close examination of a few representative and critical issues. While our focus is on schools in the United States, we will broaden our discussion at times to examine the same issues from an international perspective. Central to our study is the organization and impact of key “opportunity structures,” most critically those of race and class, in urban schools and communities.
