EDUC-6371: Community Engagement Strategies

This class provides exposure to real-world real-time ‘collective action’ approaches to community engagement. Each class begins with exposure to an organizer or activist from Seattle who is designing and delivering programs that intersect social justice and environmental issues. Students engage in discussion and reflective analysis of current programs among environmental groups, communities of color, activists for equity and inclusion in the environmental movement, governmental and policy approaches to environmental justice, race and equity. Students are responsible for designing a program plan that engages a ‘community’ in learning about an environmental issue or in exploring the multi-dimensional nature of a place (meaning the social. political, economic and environmental factors) or exploring an issue studied in classes like the intersection of social justice and environmental education.
