SSTE 340-01 - Teaching for Social Justice

September 9, 2019 - December 9, 2019, Monday, 4:15pm - 7:00pm

In this course, we will collectively explore what it means to teach for social justice and liberation. We will examine, analyze, and apply various critical theoretical frameworks in our respective classrooms and schools; engage in activities that challenge us to critically reflect on who we are (our ideologies, prior experiences, behaviors, attitudes, and actions); learn about how educators, cultural workers, and artists resist dominant ideologies to create the world they want to see through community programs, arts, and activism; and develop projects with our school communities that push against systemic inequality in our schools and communities. Toward this end, students will be introduced to critical theoretical frameworks from various disciplines that include history, sociology, environmental studies, political science, ethnic studies, women’s studies, and education. Through various learning activities, the course aims to increase our understanding of how individual lives are shaped by larger social forces (i.e. race, class, gender, and the environment) and conversely, how we, as individuals can directly influence large, systemic issues. As a learning community, we will critically analyze how our diverse social positions and identities influence the way we see and experience the world.
