EDUC 288 - Education and Development in Haiti

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
In this course, students examine research about educational development with particular attention to Haiti. During the first third of the course, they read scholarship that explores the social, political, and educational dimensions of development. This section of the course is led by the instructor.  During the second third of the course, students lead discussions about Haitian society and culture.  Each member of the class is responsible for becoming an expert in a topic of their interest (i.e., politics and education, education for marginalized youth, the role of arts in Haitian schools), and lead a class discussion of that topic.  During the final third of the course, members of the class either conduct independent research projects that connect scholarship presented in the course to current conditions in Haiti—or take a trip to Haiti over spring break; this depends on the political and health situation in Haiti.  Christopher Bjork.

One 2-hour period.
