Description: This course examines frameworks for deconstructing teaching and learning in urban school contexts. Students will examine myths, misconceptions, and instructional and institutional practices that influence the opportunity and achievement gaps for students-of-color and those who live in poverty. Emphasis is placed on understanding critical race theory, communities as funds of knowledge, and culturally responsive schools and classrooms that promote equity and social justice for all learners.
