EDUC 201 LE3 - Identity and Difference in Edu

Campus: Urbana-Champaign

Description:

Focuses on the role of identity in schooling and the way in which identity is socially constructed. Examine how power and privilege impact equity and opportunities based on socially constructed identities such as race, social class, gender, sexual identity, language, (dis)ability, and nationalism. Explore asset-based frameworks that are identity affirming and counter deficit-based perspectives. This course is designed for students interested in reflecting on their own experiences as learners by critically examining their socially constructed identities and "ways of knowing" and the societal implications of these experiences. It is also for those considering careers in teaching, and anyone interested in reflecting on how issues of inclusion, exclusion, power, and privilege play out in education.

Special Instructions:

EDUC 201 requires 20 hours of community placement and those will be organized in the first few weeks of class. This section is restricted to students who are first time freshmen in the College of Education. On July 15th, restrictions will be removed and any remaining seats will become available for registration.
