EDUC 430 3 “Teaching to Transgress:” Using Dialogic Thinking and History/Social Science Perspectives to Understand Contemporary and Historical Issues
Through their practice with Intergroup Dialogue in the context of four social studies disciplines, interns learn key orientations and skills needed to realize bell hooks' vision by (a) understanding social and historical issues that shape students in their classrooms and (b) framing education - in this case, social studies - as liberatory. This course foregrounds learning the orienting framework and practices of Intergroup Dialogue and ways of thinking across social studies disciplines (civics/political science, economics, geography, history) while delving into pedagogy to support civic discourse, inquiry and investigation, deliberation of multiple perspectives, decision making and action.
