Shor Reading

Hi Folks,

The Ira Shor reading for this week IS in fact on my electronic reserves page (sorry we doubted you, Nate!). But a cleaner copy is listed under the instructor name: AUGUST.

Either one will work.

See you Monday!!

Jean Anyon Article

Next week we will be talking about issues related to social class and schooling. You will read Jean Anyon's classic article, "Social Class and the Hidden Curriculum of Work" and a short piece by Jeannie Oakes.

As always, please make sure you have the text with you in class. We will be working with both and you must have them for reference in our conversations.

See you on Monday!

Group Meetings on Monday

Hey folks,

Sorry we missed our class last Thursday. Hope you are all safe and dry and that your families didn't sustain too much flooding!!

We will not be meeting tomorrow, Monday, so that you can have a chance to meet with your project groups. I hope you are able to connect and find some time to meet and brainstorm your practice-theory connections!

See you on Thursday, when we will be working on issues around Gender and Education. Per the syllabus, spend about one hour online researching Gender and Education. What key issues exist in 2009 around equity for boys and girls in schools? Post data, pictures, links and other information that would teach your peers about this issue.

Hope you enjoyed the beautiful weekend. See you Thursday!
