In this course, students in the leadership in urban schools programs engage in depth with sociological, psychological and anthropological theories about how people learn. Course texts will provide various interpretations about learning as a life-long process that is individual and collective, cognitive and contextual, occurring in the home, peer groups, classroom, workplace and community. The course will pay particular attention to the implications of learning theories for research, policy, and leadership in diverse communities and urban education settings.
