In this course, we will read stories, essays, and poetry depicting the efforts of their respective authors or fictional protagonists to "rise" in their societies - individually, collectively, or both. Our focus will be on education as an integral facet of these ascension narratives - formal education as well as other formative kinds of learning. Our efforts over the duration of the semester will help us examine the role of education as a means of uplift in our own lives as well as our broader society. We will explore questions regarding success and failure in these endeavors along with inescapable contradictions in these stories while reflecting on how and why they work on many of us so powerfully. Authors may include Frederick Douglass, Zitkala-Sa, Jack Conroy, Anne Moody, Jimmy Baca, and Francisco Jimenez. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement. NOTE: This is a hybrid course that is scheduled to meet weekly on Thursdays from 3:25-5:00pm; during some days or weeks of the semester, we will meet online during regular class time or work and meet online according to our own individual schedules while keeping up with course work and class discussions. The instructor will be traveling during part of the semester, interviewing people living through various stages in their own educational ascension narratives and inviting them to speak with her and the class via Skype. By the end of the semester, the hope is that students will gain deeper insight into their own ideals regarding education and its place in our lives.
