EDUC 7440 - Self in Society: Decolonizing Educator Identities Toward Excellence in Urban Education


3 Credit Hours
Description
This course centers the documented need for teachers to be self-aware of their positioning in society and reflective of their work as educators. As a foundational course in the Endorsement of Urban Education, this course centers the self in relation to society and structures of power toward helping the learner best engage their current and future students–and anyone they will come to teach. Students use an ecological identity development theory to afford a nuanced view of how our “self” is constructed socially, culturally, politically and historically–all through a decolonizing lens, one that allows us to name and work toward undoing oppressive histories. This course satisfies Strand 1 of 3 in the Urban Education Endorsement.
