109年第1學期-3181 社會：學校教育與社會：社會學的分析 課程資訊
In this course, students will develop a sociological understanding of education by using both theory and empirical evidence. We will investigate questions about the role of schooling, the social structure of schools, stratification processes within and between schools, and the outcomes of education. Overall, the purpose of this course is to help students to develop an ability to analyze educational processes and practices through a sociological approach that incorporates both individuals and institutions.
First of all, this course is composed of lectures, discussions, and students’ presentation. In the lecture classes, we will first review classic literature, discuss key ideas from the readings, and study education from comparative perspectives. Secondly, Students are expected to participate activity in class, and express their opinions on topics being discussed. Differences of opinion often lead to greater understanding even if our individual views are different from others. All students will make an oral presentation in English related to a topic in the course content.
