|AAS 463 - ECCE: Counseling in Black Literature|
This course takes an interdisciplinary, multi- and cross-cultural approach to the analysis of African American culture, using it as a basis for introducing students to the basic philosophy of Professional Counseling, developing sensitivity and awareness to the variety of social and psychological issues affecting the Black community, especially as conceived and expressed creatively in literary forms by Black writers. Close readings of literature, particularly novels that provide useful character and plot development, will be viewed as case studies to be discussed and analyzed. Students will also engage in a field project to explore course issues in the local community. Course Information: This course fulfills an Engaged Citizenship Common Experience requirement at UIS in the area of ECCE U.S. Communities or in the area of ECCE Elective.
