Teaching Graduate Students about Social Class: Using a Classifying Activity with an Inductive Approach
Chennault, Ronald E.
Multicultural Education, v17 n2 p56-60 Win 2010
Teaching about social class holds special significance for students who will work in the fields of education and human services. In this article, the author describes how he teaches graduate students about social class using a classifying activity with an inductive approach. He follows this activity with a discussion of course readings that take a more institutional perspective by focusing on stratification in society, the role that schooling plays in this stratification, and the influence of capitalism on schooling. (Contains 1 figure and 4 notes.)
