BCD410 - Critical Social Theories

In this course, students are introduced to critical social theory, and the various sub-fields of critical theory relevant to work in human services contexts. Students will develop the skills necessary for questioning the values and assumptions of society, and to move beyond mere explanation of social phenomena, towards transformation of society. Dominant discourses about children and childhood are problematized and deconstructed with an aim to reconceptualizing ways of being in the world with children that are equitable and just. Critical literacy is explored as a pedagogical tool for engaging children in the critical reading of the world.
