EDIJ 241-01 CBL: Gateway Seminar: Urban Education

CN: 26278

Sabrina Wesley-Nero

EDIJ 241, Essential Practices for Effective Instruction I, is a community based learning praxis course. This course examines the relationship among the teacher, learner, and content. Through this course students create an asset-based approach to working with learners, develop as reflective practitioners, and strengthen inquiry skills as they relate to education issues. This course is designed to challenge students to reflect on their identities as learner and teacher and on their work with students in the community.

EDIJ 220-01 CBL: Education, Equity, Advocacy

CN: 31076

Emily Gasoi

Realizing the American promise of equal access for all children to high quality education has been an ongoing struggle, even as the definitions of equal and everyone have broadened and shifted over time. Advocacy, defined here as “organized efforts and actions based on the reality of what is and a vision of what should be," has long played a central role in the evolution of equitable, universal education. In this course students will examine historical trends and pertinent theoretical frameworks to explore ways that educational advocacy organizations have defined what is and worked to advance their respective goals for what should be regarding educational equity. A major component of this course involves students engaging in field-based learning as partners with a non-profit community group, organization, or institution that advocates for educational equity. Through work with their advocacy partners, students will have the opportunity to conduct in-depth research and complete a project on a specific topic as they work to advance their host organization’s efforts. In-class learning experiences for this course include professor and student-facilitated discussion, lecture, multi-media presentations, and guest speakers.

ENGL 296-01 CBL: Reading/Teaching/Soc Refl

CN: 23391

John Hirsh

Reading, Teaching and Social reflection is intended for students interested in teaching, and besides the usual classes, involves working for two hours one morning a week (the morning is chosen by the student) as a teacher's aide in one of three inner-city Catholic schools. These schools include Immaculate Conception School in Shaw and Sacred Heart Bi-lingual School in Mount Pleasant, all of which have been welcoming Georgetown students for the past 13 years. The focus of the course is on teaching reading in the primary grades, and students from this class have gone on to Teach for America, the Inner-City-Teaching-Corps and to degree programs in Education at Berkeley, Columbia Teachers College and Harvard, among other places.

ENGL 298-01 CBL: Sursum Corda

CN: 23392

4 credits | John Hirsh

This course involves tutoring, for one hour twice a week exclusive of travel time,, a child who lives in the Golden Rule Apartments about 4.5 miles from campus, and attending a weekly seminar on campus to discuss both your work as a tutor, and other issues related to what we do there. Though based (with some changes) on the earlier, and now closed, Sursum Corda project, this is a very new program (it began in September 2017) and in many ways is still being constituted. But thus far the Golden Rule program has gone very well indeed, and promises to continue developing in the future.

LHSV 480-01 CBL: Jesuit Values in Professional Practice

CN: 31553

3 credits | Jamie Kralovec

The mission of the School of Continuing Studies at Georgetown University is to “educate students to become more reflective, active, purposeful citizens who strive to improve themselves and our shared world, embodying Georgetown’s Catholic and Jesuit values and heritage and respecting the principles and traditions of each individual.” What are Jesuit values, why do they matter in your education at SCS, and how do you put them into action in your professional lives? Using the Jesuit pedagogical model of a constant interplay of experience-reflection-action, this course introduces students to the core Jesuit values and engages them by means of lectures, guest speakers, individual reflections, class discussion, and community service experiences outside of the classroom. All students will be responsible for taking on a direct community service activity as part of the class (an average of 1 to 2 hours each week for a total of 20-40 hours over the course of the semester), an experiential learning exercise that will provide data for ongoing individual and group reflections. This course also serves as a gateway to the resources offered at Georgetown for students to explore Jesuit values in greater depth, including opportunities for community-based service, research, and spiritual development. The university’s Office of Mission and Ministry and Center for Social Justice, Research, Teaching & Service (CSJ) are highly involved in the delivery of the class. Open to students in all programs offered at SCS, this course is truly interdisciplinary. Taking seriously the encouragement of recent Jesuit General Congregations to seek greater understanding of religions and cultures by robust engagement with them, students will be continually challenged to approach their own practice areas with new eyes by exploring perspectives from the broad and inclusive professional community at SCS. Students should take away from this course a clear understanding of Georgetown’s Jesuit mission and be able to put into action values inspired by a 450-year-old educational tradition and thereby enhance one’s own professional development. Special note: This class is open to and welcomes students from all faith traditions or no faith tradition.

Note: This three-credit elective is open to students in the MALS and MPS programs. In addition to readings and assignments, students commit to 1-2 hours per week of community service with a community-based organization as part of course requirements. Course is delivered in collaboration with the University's Office of Mission and Ministry and the Center for Social Justice, Research, Teaching & Service.

5 credits | Lori Spencer

Multiple sections available

This course focuses on public health nursing and the core public health functions, and is designed to examine practice with populations.  It provides core knowledge in the specialty of public health nursing and public health sciences. Public health and nursing concepts provide the framework for the study and care of populations with an emphasis on health promotion, protection, and disease prevention in communities and populations. Students will also integrate knowledge from systems and leadership theory into their roles as members of interdisciplinary teams serving communities/populations.

PSYC 252-01 CBL: Intro to Community Psychology

CN: 32577

3 credits | Jen Woolard

This course introduces students to the science and practice of community psychology, which emphasizes understanding and changing larger social contexts. Community psychologists work on many of the social issues facing communities today such as juvenile violence, homelessness, child abuse, and welfare reform. They combine theory, research, and action to promote health and prevent problems in communities, groups, and individuals. We examine the field’s major orienting concepts: stress and coping, prevention, empowerment, and resilience. We evaluate the field’s guiding principles: knowledge within a value system, the role of context, importance of diversity, commitment to social change, and orientation toward strengths. Because the field of community psychology resulted from psychologists' active questioning of the prevailing models of science and practice, students will be encouraged to question and debate their views.

UNXD-204-01 Theory to Community Engagement in Childhood & Society

ANTH 351 - Refugees/Asylees/Migrants/Traf

This community-based research seminar on migration combines anthropology and principles of activist research. With 65 million people forcibly displaced, and over 244 million more migrants living abroad worldwide, migration in its various forms is one of the most pressing human rights issues today. As an anthropology class, we will read about the lived experience of migration – spotlighting the distinctions and commonalities between migrants, refugees, asylees, and trafficked persons. And as members of a 4-credit community-based research class, students will conduct field research and create advocacy opportunities on behalf of migrants in the Metropolitan D.C. area. In this way, you will learn from the communities around you while contributing in ways that they identify.

EDIJ 242 - CBL:Educating the Whole Child

Educating the Whole Child is an intensive, experiential* CBL course.  This course will give you the opportunity to experience firsthand education enacted with teachers and students in local public schools. Building upon a central tenet of education at Georgetown, ‘education of the whole person’, this course examines the extent to which a “whole child” view of education is at work in K-12 schools. Amid today’s push for college and career readiness and higher academic standards for all, how are schools educating the whole child? How do schools ensure that students are prepared to function effectively in society? What could education of the whole child look like? In this course you will examine these and other questions facing education today. Through readings, discussions, videos, and school based observation and volunteering, you will examine the education of the whole child in today’s public schools.

*As a 4 credit CBL course, students volunteer in DC area public schools 4 hours per week for 10 weeks during the school day (typically 8:30-3:15). Most students schedule one day per week to complete the CBL required hours. Others go two days per week and serve 2 hours each day. Please note that transportation to and from the schools via public transportation typically takes an additional 45 minutes each way. CBL sites will be assigned during the first weeks of class.

FMST 399 - Social Justice Documentary

Social Justice Documentary takes up three intersecting bodies of knowledge:

Documentary Filmmaking techniques and practices
Film and Media Studies scholarship
Social Justice Theory and the practices of Community Based Organizations in Washington, DC

The course will enable students to collaborate with members of DC-based Community Organizations in order to create documentary video projects and learn about non-fiction video as a tool for social action.
 
Students in Social Justice Documentary will work in small teams to produce short documentary videos about social justice issues as related to the work of Washington, DC-based Community Organizations.  At the end of the course students should be able to define, summarize, and interpret documentary theories; have a working knowledge of pre-production, production, and post-production processes that are part of making a documentary video; and be able to formulate and demonstrate ways through which documentary video can be used to meet social justice ends. In addition, students will have gained experience in working as members of video production team—as successful video production heavily depends on cooperation, collaboration, and respect among team members.  This is a 4-credit course and will require substantial time outside of scheduled class meetings. This course will include hands-on workshops on camera, lighting, sound, and editing scheduled in additional to regular course meetings.

JUPS 410 - CBL:Immigration&Social Justice

This course will examine the history, policies, and social forces that have shaped migration to the United States, focusing in particular on the post-1960s period. We will discuss the socio political and economic factors that contribute to the movement of people, and social movements and campaigns to protect migrants' rights. Given the contentiousness of the issue of undocumented immigrants in the U.S., we will focus on understanding the social and legal construction of one's immigration status, responses to past and current waves of migration, federal and local efforts to control unauthorized migration, and the immigration reform debate. As a community-based learning course, students will have the opportunity to study the DC immigrant community and partner with organizations that serve immigrants to learn first-hand of their challenges and aspirations. Class discussions will be based on guest speaker presentations, documentary films, and assigned readings, including books, research articles, reports, ethnographies, and testimonies

3 Credits | Professor: Diana Guelespe

MGMT 278 - Courage & Moral Leadership

As leaders, you will be confronted with challenging situations in which you may have to step up, find the courage from within, and take action to “do the right thing.” In taking action to do the right thing, you are responding with “moral energy to a crisis or challenge in way that has meant a lot to others” (Coles, Lives of Moral Leadership, p. xvii). The response you make in the face of crisis or challenge is at the core of moral leadership.

The course has three key objectives. First, we will explore the importance of reflection in action, which is central to moral leadership. In addition to the course readings and exercises, this objective will be served in an off-campus retreat conducted by the Reverend Steve Spahn, S.J., Director of Ignatian Programs at Georgetown.
Second, we will analyze when and why people engage in moral leadership, including the role of courage in undertaking such action—and how those actions changed the course of history or influenced the day-to-day quality of life in local communities, organizations, and nations. This objective will be served in the “Daring to Resist” and the “Moral Leadership Project” papers.
The final objective of this course focuses on how you translate values into actions. More specifically, how to act on one’s beliefs—to resist that which is wrong or unjust, and convince others “to stand for something you believe in, the good, the right thing to do” (Coles, Lives of Moral Leadership, p. xxi). This objective will be served in the Community-Based Learning (CBL) project in this course.

MUSC 324 - Music in US Prisons

In 1934, the singer Lead Belly left prison and became a famous recording artist, often performing dressed in his prison stripes. What was it about the association between music and prison that drew listeners? Today, many inmates participate in music programs and practice countless hours in the hopes of becoming successful musicians themselves. Does music change when associated with the prison experience? This course presents a wide history of music in American prisons from the early 1900s to today. We will explore the subject from many perspectives: the inmate’s, the folk music scholar’s, the politician’s, and the activist’s, analyzing within the cultural and political context of their time. This is accomplished through discussions of critical readings and primary sources. In the end, we will come to a deeper understanding of what music can do and mean in prison. A major outcome of the course is to draft a proposal for music programming at the DC Jail in collaboration with the prisoners who are also taking the class. We will draw connections between the role of the jail and the surrounding community, finding ways in which music resonates with incarceration, criminal justice, and public policy. We will strive to move beyond “decorative” justice by identifying sustainable practices of impactful music.

Community-Based Learning (CBL) at Georgetown University is defined as: an academic course-based pedagogy that involves student work with disadvantaged and underserved individuals or groups, or organizations working with and for disadvantaged and underserved individuals or groups. This form of learning is often called "service-learning." The Community-based Learning model attempts to capture Georgetown's central commitment to partnership with community representatives in designing mutually beneficial outcomes for CBL courses.

This course is a special elective for American Studies.

This course meets Tuesdays and Thursdays on campus, and Fridays together with inmates at the D.C. Jail. T A major outcome of the course is to draft a proposal for music programming at the DC Jail in collaboration with the prisoners participating in the class.

SPAN 380 - Spanish in the Community

Spanish in the Community is a community-based learning (CBL) course conducted in Spanish that focuses on the dynamic interaction between language, society and identity among the Latinx communities in the U.S. This 4-credit course requires 20+ hours of community-based work outside at work with a local, community-based partner organization in addition to preparation for and attendance at two weekly class sessions. The outside work is considered part of class time for the purpose of course credit with the Registrar's Office, but students will schedule their own work with their partner organizations, according to the organization’s needs.  In class, we will take a hands-on, discussion-based approach to understanding key sociolinguistic issues that affect and shape Spanish-speaking communities in the Washington, D.C. area, and throughout the U.S.  Topics covered include, among others: Latinx identity; immigration, labor and U.S. national identity; access to education; bilingualism, language ideologies, language contact and language shift in the United States. Critical sociolinguistics assumes that race/ethnicity, class and gender are particularly cogent categories of analysis because they are used as tools in the unequal distribution of power, status, and material goods. The production of knowledge for its own sake is not the goal of critical sociolinguistics; rather, social change for the common good is the goal of systematic language analysis and linguistic education.   

4 Credits | Professor Maria Moreno

SPAN-396-01 Spanish Sociolinguistics

Spanish Sociolinguistics is a seminar conducted in Spanish that focuses on the dynamic interaction between language, society and identity in the Spanish-speaking world.  Topics covered include, among others: bilingualism; language ideologies and language policy; language and identity (individual, group, and national identities); language contact and language shift in Latin America, Spain and the United States; race, ethnicity and language; endangered languages and language death; language, power and colonialism; and language and gender.  We will use these lenses to examine and contrast different speech communities on three continents through units focused on Latin America, Spain, and the United States.  We will also explore the less well-known use of Spanish in the Philippines and Africa and the fascinating linguistic case of Judeo-Spanish or Ladino.  In each context, we will pay special attention to the way race/ethnicity, class and gender are used as tools in the unequal distribution of power, status, and material goods, and how they are coded into language usages, language prestige, and stigmatized speech.
