EDUC 429: Reducing Health Disparities and Closing the Achievement Gap through Health Integration in Schools (HUMBIO 122E, PEDS 229)

(HUMBIO students must enroll in HUMBIO 122E. Med/Graduate students must enroll in PEDS 229.) Health and education are inextricably linked. If kids aren't healthy, they won't realize their full potential in school. This is especially true for children living in poverty. This course proposes to: 1) examine the important relationship between children's health and their ability to learn in school as a way to reduce heath disparities; 2) discuss pioneering efforts to identify and address manageable health barriers to learning by integrating health and education in school environments.

EDUC 430C: Using Data to Describe the World: Descriptive Social Science Research Techniques (SOC 258C)

This course focuses on the skills needed to conduct theoretically-informed and policy-relevant descriptive social science. Students read recent examples of rigorous descriptive quantitative research that exemplifies the use of data to describe important phenomena related to educational and social inequality. The course will help develop skills necessary to conceptualize, operationalize, and communicate descriptive research, including techniques related to measurement and measurement error, data harmonization, data reduction, and visualization. Students develop a descriptive project during the course. Prerequisite: satisfactory completion of a course in multivariate regression.

EDUC 439: Critical Race Theory in Education

This seminar will examine the foundational tenets of Critical Race Theory (CRT) as an analytic framework to study of inequities in P-20 education. Each week will examine how CRT tenets developed in law and were taken up in education via epistemology, methodology, and axiology. Consequently, the course will move temporally, spatially, and pedagogically across fields and siblings of Critical Race Theory. We will use the course content as a vehicle to understand the theoretical and analytical power and limits of CRT. Finally, we will explore CRT's focus on identifying and disrupting white supremacy, anti-Blackness, and interlocking inequities (re)produced in education.

EDUC 440: Re-Examining Special Education through Multiple Lenses

This seminar, intended to grow and shift with the changing landscape of education, with particular focus on students with learning differences and the interests of our doctoral students and faculty, begins by exploring three questions: (1) How can scholars and scientists support the growth and development of students with learning differences? (2) How do we define and critique evidence-based practices (EDPs), including what counts as evidence and in what ways do EDPs support change in school outcomes? (3) In what ways do the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) provide direction and support progress in creating fully inclusive communities across the U.S.? What are the missed opportunities, misdirections, and barriers to fully emancipated and connected lives? Conveners will likely change each quarter along with topics

EDUC 445: Entrepreneurial Approaches to Education Reform

(Same as STRAMGT 335) In this course, students will investigate opportunities and challenges of entrepreneurial ventures trying to make a positive impact in public education. The course requires a basic level of understanding of the U.S. K-12 public school system. The first session will analyze the structure of the public education as an industry, with a special emphasis on understanding the achievement gap. Subsequent sessions will explore challenges in increasing efficacy, ensuring financial sustainability, and scaling for entrepreneurs who have sought to change student outcomes, solve pain points, and innovate. The course will feature a variety of ventures (including schools, education technology, training, and supplemental services) and organizational models (for-profit, not-for-profit, and benefit corporation). This course is suitable for students aspiring to be entrepreneurs, leaders in entrepreneurial organizations, leaders in educational organizations, Board members, donors or investors. (Note: this is not a "how-to" course on starting an entrepreneurial venture.)

EDUC 450C: Qualitative Interviewing (ENVRES 231)

Addressing the theoretical underpinnings of qualitative interviews as well as the application of theory to practice, this course considers different approaches to interviewing. Interview types covered will range from group interviews to individual interviews, and from unstructured, ethnographically oriented interviews to highly structured interviews. Working with community partners to facilitate application to practice, the students will move from theory to interview design, implementation, and initial stages of analysis, with an emphasis on consistency in approach and utility in graduate-level research.
