In this course, pre-service teachers (PSTs) are positioned as co-learners and knowledge producers who are supported to engage in socio-cultural explorations of educational inclusion and exclusion. The course draws from a critical knowledge base that includes history, politics, and sociology of education, and applies lenses for analysis such as race and class. This enables PSTs’ to explore contemporary educational issues while developing informed standpoints on questions of social justice and the fundamental purposes of education. Specific consideration is given to the educational experiences of First Nations and culturally diverse, high poverty students for whom educational policy has historically failed. PSTs will demonstrate understanding of these issues and implications for their teaching through individual and collaborative assessment pieces that bridge the research-teaching nexus.
