Course Description

This course examines equity in education through the lens of historical, systemic, institutional and individual practices. Students will analyze multiple levels of education policy in order to understand the context in which educational equity exists. This course will provide educators with the opportunity to create their own understanding of equity and identify ways that they can work to create a more equitable school and classroom environment for their students. Educators will reflect on ideas and concepts around policies, Social Emotional Learning, Culturally Responsive Practices, Unconscious Bias, Restorative Practices, Humanizing Pedagogy, qualitative data, and how they pertain to educational equity. Throughout this course, educators will gain valuable tools and apply ways of thinking that advance equity for all students, especially students and families from marginalized populations.

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

  • Analyze and describe the current policies and practices that exist at the district, school, and classroom level that advance or hinder equity
  • Understand the historical context in which inequities in the education system exist
  • Explain practices and ways of thinking that positively contribute to creating a more equitable educational environment for  students
  • Develop an action plan in which they re-envision a current policy or practice in school or classroom through a more equitable lens
