I am a director for Project Literacy, a nonprofit tutoring organization on campus, whose mission is educational enrichment and mentorship for communities with historically high rates of illiteracy, low socioeconomic status, and ongoing threats of gang-related violence. This winter quarter, we are offering a course on variable topics in education, and we would greatly appreciate if you could send the following information about the class to your students.
Project Literacy, a nonprofit tutoring organization on campus, is offering a 2 unit pass/no pass seminar for undergraduates this winter quarter.
EDUC 184- Variable Topics in Learning and Teaching will meet Thursdays from 4-5pm and will feature 9 speakers on different education topics. Past topics include critical media literacy, foundations of tutoring for social justice, and how people learn. The class is designed to help students who tutor K-12 underserved students with their work in the community by providing information about learning theory and teaching skills. It is a great class for anyone who has an interest in pursuing a career in teaching or for anyone interested in understanding the way we learn and the different factors that affect learning, both inside and outside the classroom.
To enroll in the class, or for more information about the course, please contact Emily Swanson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
