PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE TITLE: No change PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE DESCRIPTION: EDUC 200 SOCIAL CONTEXTS OF EDUCATION Critical analysis of educational systems within cultural, social, political, and economic contexts. Major issues in education addressed through a variety of perspectives, including practices for democratizing classrooms and schools, teaching for social justice and equity in a diverse society, multicultural education, school reform. Admission to Teacher Education required for enrollment. Prerequisite: EDUC 100. Fall, Spring, Summer. (50 words) LEARNING OUTCOMES: No change – on file. RATIONALE: This change is being proposed in response to a request from the Registrar’s Office to make prerequisites enforceable at the time of registration. Admission to Teacher Education program processes occur between semesters and are therefore not enforceable at time of registration. By placing the expectation that admission to the teacher education program must occur prior to enrollment in the course, we are informing students of this requirement while making the actual prerequisite one that can be checked during on-line registration. RESOURCES: Course is currently offered. No change here. ADVISORY OPINIONS: None needed.
