Educ 694: Gender in Education


This course will provide students the opportunity to examine issues of gender as it relates to the field of education within the context of the United States. Utilizing multiple theoretical frameworks from education and gender studies, students will analyze the historical, political, social, and economic influences of gender in education. Students will reflect on their own experience as students, and compare theirs with others through classroom discussions, course readings, books, films, and firsthand observation in the classroom. Throughout the course, students will aim to conceptualize classroom pedagogy and educational policy that is equitable for all learners. While not the focus, constructions of race, sexuality, class, religion, and ability will be addressed as students investigate their intersections with gender and education.
