Community Engaged Learning
This course is an interdisciplinary investigation of the social, political, economic, and historical context of schooling for students in U.S. K-12 and higher educational systems who are/have been minoritized due to their gender and/or sexuality. Students will be introduced to concepts, theories, and skills that will provide opportunities to consider the educational experiences and realities of women and LGBTQ students. The class will also take up experiences of women and LGBTQ people in social institutions that are connected to educational systems such as healthcare, family, politics, media, and work. A vital component of the course will be to consider the way that intersectionality unfolds in the lives of women and LGBTQ people, therefore, race, class, age, ability, religion, and citizenship status will be considered throughout the course.
