EDUC 205 - PHILOSOPHY AND PRACTICE OF CONTEMPLATIVE EDUCATION
This course integrates asana and other forms of physical mindfulness as a pedagogical tool. (Meaning students should come prepared to move.) It is organized around three components: (1) an overview of diverse traditions of contemplative practices and an exploration of commonalities within these practices with a focus on Yoga philosophy; (2) an exploration of physical mindfulness and the mind, body, spirit connection in the creation of our personal contemplative practices; and (3) an investigation of the educational, social, and personal benefits of these practices. The first component introduces material from the classical traditions of Asia--indu, Buddhist, Taoist--and of the Middle East--Jewish, Christian, Muslim and syntheses of different traditions (e.g., the work of Thich Nanh Hanh that bridges Asian and Western traditions); In working with a broad range of traditions, we consider two kinds of material: (1) classical texts that undergird contemplative practices; and (2) modern commentaries on these practices that explore benefits to the body, mind, and society. These physiological, psychological, and sociological perspectives are important in preparing us to explore the educational benefits of traditional contemplative practices. The second component presents traditions of physical mindfulness and yoga pedagogy, and the third component presents educational benefits of contemplative practices not only in formal settings such as the classroom but also in other settings such as psychotherapy and conflict resolution. In our readings we explore these benefits from the perspective of both the individual and society.

EDUC 221 - SOCIAL CONTEXT OF EDUCATION
Public education, particularly in the United States, has been seen as both the savior of American society and, conversely, as the cause of many of its biggest problems. At various times in our history, the institution of public education held the promise of assimilating immigrants, instilling "Americanism" and ideals of citizenship, and providing the necessary skills to youth for active participation in a changing economy. At other times, especially those of real or perceived cultural or economic crises, public education has been blamed for turning out ill-prepared students with the explicit or implicit argued result of rising crime rates and juvenile delinquency, overall economic decline, or deteriorating morals. This course will provide a historical overview of the development of public education in America, how it was perceived by the public at large, and the periodic efforts at reforming schools to meet the changing realities of American society. lt will also provide a forum in which we can explore and debate the current status of education in the United States and compare it to other national systems of education across the globe. The goal of the course is to provide historical background to current issues and debates over the nature of education and to show how debates over schooling often reflect larger societal debates over the nature of society and culture.
