Courses

EDUC 0815. Language in Society. 3 Credit Hours.

How did language come about? How many languages are there in the world? How do people co-exist in countries where there are two or more languages? How do babies develop language? Should all immigrants take a language test when applying for citizenship? Should English become an official language of the United States? In this course we will address these and many other questions, taking linguistic facts as a point of departure and considering their implications for our society. Through discussions and hands-on projects, students will learn how to collect, analyze, and interpret language data and how to make informed decisions about language and education policies as voters and community members.

EDUC 0817. Youth Cultures. 3 Credit Hours.

Do you listen to hip hop, spend all your time in Second Life, dress up like a cartoon character and go to anime fairs, or go skateboarding every day with your friends? Then you're part of the phenomenon called youth culture. Often related to gender, race, class and socio-economic circumstances, youth cultures enable young people to try on identities as they work their way to a clearer sense of self. Empowered by new technology tools and with the luxury of infinite virtual space, young people today can explore identities in ways not available to previous generations. Students in this class will investigate several youth cultures, looking closely at what it means to belong. They will also come to appreciate how the media and marketing construct youth identities and define youth cultures around the world. NOTE: This course fulfills the Human Behavior (GB) requirement for students under GenEd and the Individual & Society (IN) requirement for students under Core.

EDUC 0819. Tweens and Teens. 3 Credit Hours.

Exuberance, excitement, social expansion, risk-taking, experimentation, breaking away, testing limits. Anxiety, peer pressure, competition, parental pressure, work and school, drugs and alcohol, test scores. These are some of the challenges that make adolescence one of the most intriguing and disturbing stages of life. But adolescence is only one stage on a continuum of human development that begins in infancy and extends into old age. At each stage, we have hurdles to climb over, tasks to complete, experiences to absorb, lessons to learn. Yet in contemporary society the extended period between childhood and adulthood seems to capture all the attention. Why? This class on human development takes a close look at one of the most confusing, exciting, and critical phases of development, the pre-teen and teen years. Using literature, TV and film, as well as articles and books from the field of human development, the course will explore how children grow into teenagers, how they survive the challenges of adolescence, and how they become productive adults. NOTE: This course fulfills the Human Behavior (GB) requirement for students under GenEd and the Individual & Society (IN) requirement for students under Core. Students cannot receive credit for this course if they have successfully completed Education 0919.

EDUC 0823. Kids in Crisis: When Schools Don't Work. 3 Credit Hours.

This course is designed to teach students how to think about race and diversity through the lens of three social problems in schools. Social problems are part of modern society. They represent a gap between what we would like society to be like and the lived reality for individuals in the society. Race and diversity are implicated in the framing of these three issues as social problems and in devising solutions that move us towards a more equitable society. Devising solutions to social problems and participating in their implementation is an important role for citizens in a democracy. In order to do so we need to understand the role of race and diversity in modern American society and in our own lived experience. This General Education course will examine three pressing social problems in American society that play out in our schools--segregation and racial isolation in schools, school violence, and dropout. Questions that will guide our exploration of these social problems include: Can schools "solve" social problems? How do schools and teachers participate in the social construction of race? How does a student's race influence his or her experiences in American schools?

EDUC 0917. Honors Youth Cultures. 3 Credit Hours.

Some young people dye their hair red and go to punk concerts, listen to hip hop, spend all their time in Second Life, dress up like cartoon characters and go to anime fairs, or skateboard every day. They're part of the phenomenon called youth culture. Often related to gender, race, class and socio-economic circumstances, youth cultures enable young people to find new communities and try on different identities as they work their way to a clearer sense of self. Students in this class will investigate several youth cultures, looking closely at why people join and what it means to belong. They will also conduct independent, original research on a youth culture of their choice and draw their own conclusions about how youth cultures interact with mainstream society. (This is an Honors course.) NOTE: This course fulfills the Human Behavior (GB) requirement for students under GenEd and the Individual & Society (IN) requirement for students under Core.

EDUC 8102. Ethnographic Research Methods. 3 Credit Hours.

This class will use an in-depth study of ethnographic methods to develop qualitative data collection skills. Ethnography is one type of qualitative research. It uses the study of people in their natural settings to attempt to understand their social world, culture, and the meanings they make of their experiences in social contexts. According to LeCompte and Schensul, "ethnography takes the position that human behavior and the ways in which people construct and make meaning of their worlds and their lives are highly variable and locally specific...[Thus,] ethnographic researchers learn through systematic observation in the 'field,' by interviewing and carefully recording what they see, hear, and observe people doing, while also learning the meanings that people attribute to what they do and the things they make" (LeCompte and Schensul, pp. 1-2). Because ethnographic research is intensive and involves a variety of data collection techniques–observations, interviews, and document analysis–learning ethnography is a good way to explore all of these techniques.

EDUC 9255. Res.Seminar/Math/Sci Ed. 3 Credit Hours.

This three credit graduate course will introduce you to a subset of major research lines emerging in the fields of mathematics and science education. We will examine the research literature to understand the "hot topics," focusing on those that are currently in debate in the fields. While the course will be focused around topics that affect both fields, readings will help us understand how these topics are being conceptualized in the individual areas of science education and mathematics education. In addition to these topics, this course will continue building and developing the skills that doctoral students will need in order to be successful in their graduate programs and in their professional lives. In particular, this course will focus on developing skills related to writing integrated reviews of research, necessary both for your dissertation and publication. Specific skills focused on in this course will be: situating your research within a larger context (i.e., asking meaningful and answerable (!) questions), identifying focus of specific journals, and writing a critical literature review.
