Selected Topics in Societies, Cultures and Languages: Education and Social Justice

The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” Education has long been seen as a means for addressing social problems, pulling the poor out of poverty, pursuing economic and environmental justice, offering social mobility and securing for new generations the promise of a better life. At the same time, researchers, teachers, and media pundits have faulted schools as the cause of stifling social reproduction, prejudice, and inequalities in Canadian society. This course examines the history, present, and future of efforts to improve society through education. How have efforts to pursue social justice – locally, nationally, and globally – succeeded or failed? What strategies for change hold the most promise for improving society?

Selected Topic: Problem-based learning across curriculum

An examination of problem-based learning (PBL) across content areas and education levels, including theoretical and practical aspects and comparisons with project-based and place-based learning.

This course provides an introduction to problem-based learning (PBL) theories and practices across education levels (elementary to adult) and subject areas (e.g., science, 2nd language learning, health, mathematics). After reviewing the historical, theoretical, and pedagogical foundations of PBL, we will examine project-based (PjBL) and place-based learning, and then consider all three approaches in a variety of settings. Flexible assignments will allow students to pursue their own educational perspectives.

Selected Topic in Teaching and Learning: Connections in the Classroom

 

Restorative Justice (RJ) has been increasingly embedded in school policies and practice, primarily as a method to correct individual behavior. RJ, however, has a deeper potential, to help students build relationships and make school safe, equitable and relevant for its members. Using a relational pedagogy approach, this course examines how RJ is currently understood, implemented, and institutionalized in schools and explores how teachers can develop relationship-building competencies and capacity to implement RJ in effective, holistic and sustainable ways.

Gender and Sexuality Education in the 21st Century.

Schools, as social institutions, strongly influence, alter, and police the construction of identity. This course takes up current intersectional research in education about gender and identity across lines such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and dis/ability in order to ask how gender is tied to other identities, how the concept of ‘normal’ is constructed in educational spaces, and what possibilities and challenges occur when we step away from normative gendered and sexual roles in the classroom and beyond.
