This seminar is designed to provide historical knowledge and understanding about underlying systems of racial inequity as well as the enduring effects of inequity in education today. We will explore how the concepts of culturally relevant pedagogy, diversity, inclusivity, multiculturalism, and social and emotional trauma emerged in education literature. Of special import, is how these concepts inform literacy: assessment, practice, and research. Independently, students will address a specific concern of educational inequity as part of a culminating final project.
