EDUC 380 - Civic Engagement in U.S. Education

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
This seminar focuses on the issue of civic engagement in U.S. schools, with a particular focus on how youth demonstrate critical consciousness, develop critical civic empathy, and foster a sense of global citizenship. We discuss both the possibilities and challenges of enacting social change from youth-centered learning spaces, and special emphasis is  placed on understanding how learners can draw from multiple languages and modalities to engage with current events and participate in social action. This class explores how students can move beyond understanding the fundamental principles of government to engage in diverse forms of meaning-making and strengthen their civic literacy capacities in curricular and extracurricular settings. This course involves regular collaborations with students.
