EDUC 369 - Urban Education and Poverty


Credits: 4

Prerequisite: EDUC 200, EDUC 210, ECON 236, POV 101, or any Education course numbered between 300 and 399. Same as ECON 234. In this course, students explore pedagogy, curriculum, and social issues related to urban education by working in schools in the Richmond area for three weeks. Students read about and discuss the broader social and economic forces, particularly poverty, that have shaped urban schools and the ramifications of those forces for school design. The Richmond schools provide the opportunity to observe critical components of teaching and learning in the urban classroom. Housing is provided with alumni during the week. Students return to Lexington for Friday seminars and for the fourth week of the term for seminars and discussion.
