READ 7000 - Seminar on Reading & Language Arts: Countering Deficit Thinking about Students in Poverty (contact: Dr. Janet Isbell)

This course aims to promote an understanding of deficit thinking in education as it relates to students who are disadvantaged by poverty and to help candidates develop language, skills, and competencies for countering deficit thinking in order to promote equity in education. While poverty, not diversity, is the focus of the course, issues of poverty, race, and gender intersect and thus are all discussed in the course. (Syllabus)
