  Enrollment limited to 32
  NOTE: 6 seats are reserved for Sophomores and 6 seats are reserved for First Year Students.
  This course introduces the study of schooling within an interdisciplinary framework.

Drawing upon psychology, we contrast theories of learning, both in the abstract and in practice. Drawing upon philosophy, we examine competing educational goals and their underlying assumptions regarding human nature, justice, and democracy. In addition, a community learning component, where students observe and participate in nearby K-12 classrooms for three hours per week, will be integrated with course readings and written assignments.
