EDS 355

In consultation with the instructor, students will design and carry out an experience that places them in settings and with people of cultural and/or ethnic backgrounds different from their own, and who are marginalized by merit of political, social, cultural, economic, physical, or other aspects of their situations. Students are encouraged strongly to undertake experiences in settings that will sufficiently challenge them to see life through the eyes of those with whom they will work. At the conclusion of the course, students will provide evidence of the impact of this experience, and will articulate its value in relation to their commitments, values, beliefs, and understandings about themselves as aspiring teachers.
