Through a critical, antiracist, decolonizing lens, the course will serve as a survey of qualitative methodologies including: 

❖ case study 
❖ ethnography 
❖ narrative 
❖ participant action research
❖ critical discourse analysis

 as well as current topics in educational research (including gentrification, disproportionality, and educational policy).
