In spring 17, Dr. Jennifer George will offer Families, Schools and Communities (HDFS 5150) on MWF from 11:15-12:05.
From an Ecological Perspective, this course will explore how the interconnected family, educational institutions, and communities influence the development of youth from early childhood through middle and high school. Students will consider how parent engagement, school outreach, disciplinary procedures and positive youth development in formal and informal educational settings are impacted by community context, resources and individual and family demographics (race, class, family structure, etc.).
There are existing prerequisites (HDFS 4860; EDEC 4020; POD) that we are willing to override, so if you are interested in registering for this course, please:
Bailey, Worthy and Cude recognized for scholarly efforts
The associate professor in HDFS recognized by NCFR for advancing the field
