EDUC-5230: Creative Strategies: How Formal Schooling Shapes Urban Environmental Education

Urban environmental education, either in or outside of the school day, can be made more relevant and meaningful for young people when we understand the context of their urban school system and current trends in classroom learning. Students will reflect upon their own school experiences to better understand how formal schooling shapes how and what we learn. In this course, graduate students will explore the demands and opportunities of working with school-aged children as well as best practices in leveraging partnerships with schools. Students will consider trends in formal education (topics may include science learning, social studies, or culturally responsive teaching approaches), the role of the schoolyard and community, and the value of nonprofit partnerships.
