EEDUC 5131 Developments in Cultural Contexts

The purpose of this course is to support teachers in establishing nuanced, critical perspectives on the construct of human development across cultures and experiences.  Teachers will examine various elements of development (physical, symbolic thinking, language development, social and moral development) under a critical, multicultural lens in order to develop deeper understandings of children, and the diversity of developments across the world.  This work will be done through readings, discussions, observations, and collaborations.
