This course is designed in conjunction with Teachers College’s new Summer Institute, Reimagining Education: Teaching and Learning in Racially Diverse Schools. The four-day Institute brings together educators from across the country to rethink policy, pedagogy and practice for a more racially, ethnically and socioeconomically diverse student body. As a complement to the Summer Institute, this course will explore the metaphorical “seat at the table” that is often reserved for those who wield power in a society and are considered to have the influence to make decisions and effect change. In effect, the “table” becomes a symbol of power, negotiation, and credibility through which one can improve their life chances and the lives of others. Having a seat at the table means the opportunity to share power, make change, and make a difference.
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 (June 21 or 25) and once for a post-institute meeting (July 24) 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.
This course will give graduate students a unique opportunity to engage with and listen to their peers, major speakers in this field, student performers and facilitators committed to addressing equity, race, and pedagogy. In addition to participating in the Institute, students will meet once before the Institute begins to discuss their class-specific readings and assignments. The course seeks to connect students’ understanding of their racial autobiography to current/future pedagogies and/or research within culturally, economically, and linguistically diverse PreK-12 contexts
