EDU 2308 - Advancing the Academic and Social Success of Black Girls

Credits: 3 hrs
In this oral communication course, participants will demonstrate the use of appropriate language, conventions, elocution, poise, organization, supporting evidence, and content to effectively communicate through the spoken word and increase their understanding of the academic and social inequities affecting Black girls in American P12 schools. Emphasis will be placed on building students’ oral communication skills as they explore current research on Black girls’ academic and psychosocial experiences within the educational system. Students will share culturally relevant resources for supporting the development of Black female students in an effort to decrease discipline disproportionality and to cultivate more socially just learning environments for all students.
