This urban education course is designed to explore issues of social justice in education with particular emphasis on urban education. Issues of empowerment through education are linked to Paolo Freire’s philosophy and pedagogy. Further, Ramapo College students will learn methods and techniques of teaching reading and writing skills to elementary, middle, and high school students through experiential learning and the implementation of literacy tutoring in an urban fieldwork setting. Ramapo students will learn reading and writing assessment techniques, instructional strategies, and how to construct and implement lesson plans. The required tutoring fieldwork component will provide the opportunity for students to do dynamic and transformative work in an urban school setting. Further, students will research the education structures and literacy rates in other countries, viewed through historical, cultural, and political lenses. Students may provide their own transportation, except for the orientation visits, to/from fieldwork; however, students must opt to form carpools.
