Course Descriptions

TitleChangemakers in Education

This course is designed to support students in developing the knowledge, skills, and dispositions appropriate to mentoring children in PK-12 settings.  Through readings, class discussions, and practical experiences, students will learn about issues affecting student learning. There will be an emphasis on mentoring a diverse population of students. 

Each USD student enrolled in the course will concurrently be placed at a mentoring site and assigned to work with an individual child or small group of children.  The course will be adapted each semester to meet the specific demands of the mentoring sites and partner with educational programs such as AVID, Summerbridge, Manchester, and the AjA project.  Readings, placements, and, where appropriate, program-specific trainings will support students in their mentoring assignment.
