Communication and Culture | Topics in Communication and Culture
C415 | 1177 | L. Monaghan
This course looks at the inter relationship between communication and
education, how debates about issues such as the integration of the
schools, the merits of reading methods, high stakes testing and choice
of language in the classroom (including the Oakland Ebonics
controversy) reflect ideas about culture and communication. Each
student will be required to do a service learning project in a local
school or other educational setting where they will be required to do
an ethnographic study focusing on one of the issues they we have
covered during the term.
This course may be taken as an intensive writing course.
