Excellence Through Equity

ED 501 Course Syllabus and Assignments

Course Description

This course explores the shift in education from equality, where all students are treated ‘equally’, to the more equitable model where each student gets ​what they need​. An inspiring look at real-world educators who are creating schools where all students are able to thrive is explored through the course text. In these schools, educators understand that equity is not about treating all children the same. They are deeply committed to ensuring that each student receives what he or she individually needs to develop their full potential and succeed. This text emphasizes the practices that are grounded in three important areas of research that are too often disregarded: (1) child development, (2) neuroscience, and (3) environmental influences on child development and learning. Ensuring that all students receive an education that cultivates their talents and potential is in all our common interest as a society.

Course Objectives

  1. Educators will explore the topic​ presented of ‘Getting to your core’ which includes the research based argument for ‘detracking’ which ensures each student has equitable access to rigorous academics.
  2. Teachers will examine how one can empower students with performance based assessments.
  3. Educators will be presented with ways of making organizational change district-wide through the power of leveraging human ‘capital’
  4. Teachers will have the skills and knowledge to teach science equitably to emerging bilinguals and immigrant youth.
