EDUC 330 Education and Immigration


In this course, students explore current immigration issues and how these issues impact the educational experiences of immigrant students and their families, particularly in US public schools. Students will read texts and engage with multimedia resources about citizenship and educational access, language education and language policies, refugee education and education for students with interrupted formal education, and engage current topics in immigration. In this course, students will work with community partners in Memphis who work to meet the unique needs of immigrant children at school. Students will use their academic readings and interactions with community partners to consider multiple perspectives, develop informed views on these topics, communicate their views in a way that exemplifies civil discourse, and engage with public institutions that address these issues.
