EDUC 227 - Culture, Language, and Education

The course’s focus on culture, language, and education is specially designed to draw attention to the possibilities and challenges of educating culturally and sociolinguistically diverse children and youth in U.S. society. Many of the topics examined during the semester will address questions of culture and language, access, and equity and their relationship to education. Fundamental to the course is also the belief that children and adolescents’ cultural, social, racial, historical, and linguistic experiences-both background experiences and daily contexts (e.g., home, school, and community)-are assets to be mined and leveraged with intentionality and purpose.  

Prerequisites: EDUC 152
