Topic Description / Additional Information

CASC students should enroll under this listing. Education students should enroll under EDUC 311.

This course takes an ecological perspective on the experiences of young children in poverty (ages 0-8) in the U.S. and examines the educational, social, and economic services and policies meant to support them and their families.
Through readings, classroom lectures and activities, and assignments focused on local agencies, students will learn about the lived experience of the children, the systems and interventions available to them, and how the gaps in programs contribute to inequalities and disparities in opportunities. We will offer career models for undergraduates to learn about how to get involved in making a difference for low income children and their families.
Students may use this course to fulfill the Context cluster of the CASC minor
