Edfd 709: Cultural Context of Education
The purpose of this course is to examine the culture of learning within the context of enabling students to be globally competitive. On one hand, advocates for standards-based reform argue for accountability standards in schools by calling for a prominent role of standardized assessment in foundational subjects. Others, however, emphasize the need to develop competent students by cultivating opportunities to foster creativity and collaborative learning within a context of multicultural diversity. This course examines the culture of high performing educational practices that support student readiness for college, career, and citizenship along with strategies that contribute to students being globally competent.
