SOCI 4010 - Sociology through Experiential Learning
Credit hours: 3
Description: Service Learning is an experiential learning program which integrates academic course work into community service, in this case, family literacy at the Dallas Public Library. This course is designed to foster critical thinking, social & personal responsibility, and teamwork. As a source of reflection, dialogue, and analysis, students will teach in the family literacy program (either adult ESL class or in the 9-and-under children’s program). The course readings and assignments address several sociological themes, such as how ethnicity, civic engagement, socio-economic class, immigration, education, and public institutions relate to one’s subjectivities and agency as a participant in a service learning project.
