Chalkface Rhetorics: The Politics of the Classroom in U.S. Film and Social Media

Alan Taylor

Kommentar

The practical and ideological role of American formal education has, since the nation’s inception, been a pivotal agent in articulating its democratic assumptions and in forwarding its aspirations towards equal opportunity. From Blackboard Jungle (Brooks, 1955) to The Great Debaters (Washington, 2007), the subject of schooling has, not surprisingly, emerged as a challenging and often lucrative Hollywood sub-genre that uniquely and explicitly addresses issues of hegemony, discourse, and resistance. The course will include but then advance beyond such Hollywood representations of the classroom to critically consider competing representations of education (from the Public School, the Charter School to the ‘Corporatized University’) as they have recently emerged across social media platforms. Our principle goal is to address how these rhetorical formulations are already instrumental in shaping the charged education policy debates for the coming 2016 Presidential Election. Final Student Response Papers will find support in class discussions and formal lectures as based on selected readings in rhetorical persuasion, media literacy and educational theory, and as supplemented by related class viewings Schließen
