AAST 341 - Critical Race Theory in Education

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
This is a discussion-based seminar that will explore the cultural and racial politics of schooling in the United States. Through the examination of foundational and contemporary scholarship that offer critical perspectives on race and manifestations of racism in the American school system, students will learn about how the implementation of Critical Race Theory in education can impact student experience, learning outcomes, and perhaps serve as a framework to address systemic racism in United States. Discussions around implementation will include curriculum, student support, diversity, equity, and inclusion (D.E.I.) work, faculty hiring and retention, and codes of conduct. While the course will begin with a review of Critical Race Theory and its attendant current controversies and politicization, some prior knowledge of Critical Race Theory will be expected.

Prerequisites: AAST 101 and one education-focused course.
