Course Description

The concept of culturally relevant pedagogy has been in the literature for almost 30 years. However, like all generative work such concepts need to evolve and change over time. Today, the import and influence of youth culture must be added to our conceptions of culturally relevant teaching. This course will examine the significance of student learning, cultural competence, and socio-political or critical consciousness. In addition we will examine culturally sustaining pedagogies and hip-hop as drivers of youth culture.
