If questions like these interest you, this may be the course for you! We will examine these and other controversial issues related to K-12 education. We will learn to argue these issues from both sides in order to establish our own informed positions.
We will use four books in this class:
Taking Sides: Clashing Views on Educational Issues, edited by John Wm. Noll
Critical Issues in Education: Dialogues and Dialectics (8th Edition), by Jack L. Nelson, Stuart Palonsky, and Mary Rose McCarthy.
They Say/I Say: The Moves That Matter in Academic Writing (2nd Edition), by Gerald Craff and Cathy Birkenstein.
