EDU 4480 - Critical Education: Theory, Literacy, and Pedagogy

Credits: 4
This course will examine the modern and postmodern “critical” movements in the field of Education. Special emphasis will be placed on the three most well-known areas of critical education - theory, literacy, and pedagogy. Writings/ideas of prolific researchers/theorists/activists will be a significant part of the course. Examples will be drawn from a variety of text and journal resources as well as from the lived schooling experiences of students enrolled in the class. Included in this course will be an exploration of why schools are a critically important reflection of broader societal, political and socioeconomic concerns and conditions.
