390A: Tps:Explr P-12 Institutn
Topics:Exploring P-12 Institutions as Equitable Teaching/Learning Environments
This course is designed for those students who are considering a career of teaching in their future whether through an experiential induction programs such as TFA, AUSL Chicago Teacher Residency, Fulbright, AEON Amity, JET, etc. or a traditional post-baccalaureate licensing program of study. Weekly classroom study of the field of education on campus is balanced with a weekly teaching practicum in a P-12 classroom. Interested students need to contact the instructor to discuss their interest as the heavy field practicum requires one-on-one placement.
390B: Tps:Decolonizing Educ
This course will look at educational systems, practices, and policy through the lens of decolonial theory. Decolonial theory begins from the premise that we live amidst ongoing colonial relations of land, power, and knowledge and interrogates both history and the present to illuminate, analyze and transform those relations. Critiquing the "false divide" between theory and practice, decolonial theorists are also committed to grounded action and ways of living, studying and working that contest colonial relations of power in everyday spaces including our schools and universities.
