EDP 4023 Issues: Reimagining Education: Policies for Effective Teaching and Learning in Racially Diverse Schools

  Amy Stuart-Wells, Teachers College, Columbia University

This course provides graduate students studying education policy a unique opportunity to listen to and engage the Summer Institute speakers and participants. The course will meet as part of the regularly-scheduled programming of the institute from Monday, July 16th to Thursday, July 19th, 9 am to 5 pm. Students will also meet once for a pre-institute meeting and once for a post-institute meeting to discuss their class-specific readings and assignments related to the central themes of the Institute but tailored to a graduate course in the multidisciplinary field of education policy. This is a 3-credit course with variable credit options. This course fulfills M.A. requirements for Educational Policy and Sociology and Education Programs.

C&T 4199 004 Issues: Equity, Race, and Pedagogical Practice

  Michelle Knight-Manuel, Teachers College, Columbia University

This course will give students a unique opportunity to engage with and listen to their peers, major speakers in the field, student performers and facilitators committed to addressing equity, race, and pedagogy. In addition to participating in the Institute on Reimagining Education, students will meet once before the Institute begins to discuss their class-specific readings and assignments. The course seeks to connect students’ understandings of their racial autobiography to current/future equity pedagogies and/or research within culturally, economically, and linguistically diverse Pre-K to 12 contexts.
