Learning outcomes
This mandatory elective seminar will deal with basic issues in sociology of education and school socialization, including selected problems associated with deviant and antisocial behaviour of children and youth. Students will gain understanding of specific aspects of schooling that might negatively influence and affect pupils' self-perception and behaviour, even though teachers themselves might remain oblivious to such impact on pupils. The course will deal with the problematic of social and cultural reproduction, hidden curriculum, labelling, self-fulfilling prophecy, growing aggression within the school population, bullying, and other types of socially pathological behaviour.
Students should be able to better understand the broader issues and contexts of schooling with a particular focus on students' social and cultural environment.
