Attention undergraduate students at Colorado State University who are interested in working in the field of education. Taking the new ETST/EDUC 281A1 course in fall 2018 will be an advantage when it comes to getting a job in the field of education. Restorative justice principles and practices are being implemented in K12 schools throughout the country. The CRN number is 81980.
This course will be offered for the first time at Colorado State University. The course was created to support the new collaborative work between the Department of Ethnic Studies and the College of Education. The course was designed to address theory and practice in both the fields. This course addresses two areas of current concern in education: (1) the academic underachievement of children of color, and (2) the discriminatory discipline policies and practices of schools.
Course Learning Objectives
1. Describe and distinguish principal ideas underlying culturally responsive teaching, namely, caring, curriculum, communication, and instruction.
2. Discuss and explain the concepts and constructs of restorative justice, particularly as they apply to schools, namely, creating and maintaining relationships, as well as healing the harm to relationships occurring as a result of wrongdoing and conflict.
3. Apply culturally responsive teaching and culturally appropriate restorative justice principles and practices.
