IL 2277 - COMPARATIVE AND GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES ON EDUCATION

Credits: 3.0

This course, held on the campus of the University of cape town in cape town, South Africa, explores and compares the 20th century human/civil rights-related histories of the united states and South Africa, and examines implications these histories have had on the education systems (particularly in a context of social studies education) of each country. In their comparative survey of historical, social, and educational contexts, instructors will place special emphases on the philosophies, work, and legacies of key historical individuals including Mohandas K. Gandhi, Dr. Martin l. King, Jr., Nelson Mandela, among others. Study will incorporate a critical analysis of the universal declaration of human rights (1948), lectures by noted historical experts, visits to sites of historical significance, visits to schools and other learning environments, and group discussions of relevant texts and experiences.
