This service-learning course explores the dynamics of formal and informal education in urban setting through traditional coursework integrated with personal reflection and community involvement. We will study the effects of social history and culture on the life prospects of children and youth. Students will work closely with members of the community and program staff to observe and document beliefs and practices that shape social identity and expectations. This course is intended for students with an interest in teaching, or urban and community studies, or both.

As an integral part of this course, students will be placed as tutors at a Detroit school beginning the week following the first class. This is a commitment of four hours per week (including travel time from campus). Students must be able to participate during one of the following time slots: Monday 8-12 (secondary); Tuesday 2-6 (elementary); Wednesday 8-12 (secondary); Thursday 9-1 (elementary); or Thursday 2-6 (elementary).
