Course: SED 690CI. The Multiple Roles of Secondary Educators (3)
Prerequisite: Enrollment is restricted to students in the Master of Arts in Secondary Curriculum and Instruction program or with department permission. This is a required course for M.A. degree candidates in Secondary Curriculum and Instruction. This course fosters critical inquiry into historical and current educational issues that affect and shape the roles of the secondary school educator. Through reading, discussion and debate, reflection, and writing, students develop a thorough and nuanced understanding of these issues and their implications for their own communities, schools, and classrooms. Candidates examine research on social reproduction, special education constructs, school culture, action research, outreach, classroom power, and discourse, and consider ways to apply this learning to their own communities, schools, and classrooms.
