The Ethnic Studies: Action Research in the Barrio course will focus on writing and research as tools for critically reflecting on students’ lives. Action research strategies will be developed as vehicles for self and community transformation. Framed within the broad theme Challenging Poverty and Inequality, specific topics to be explored will be generative and defined alongside students and their community. Students will develop action research and social analysis skills that will assist them in critically re-framing their lives, understanding more deeply problems impacting their community with an orientation toward solving social issues. The course culminates with a research symposium.
