ED 271 P - Intro to Philosophy of Education

Minimum Credit(s) Awarded: 3
Maximum Credit(s) Awarded: 3

This course offers an introduction to what lies beyond certain common sense understandings of education by examining the philosophical roots of traditionalist, progressivist, and functionalist understandings of education. Students will engage with key texts from educational philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, Rousseau, Dewey, Freire, and hooks, to name a few. Students will use these philosophers’ understandings and conceptualizations of education as a prism through which to tour local schools and subsequently reflect on the variety of learning environments.
