ED 216: Purpose of Education in a Democracy (Ecampus)


Welcome to ED 216. This guide is designed to help you navigate to resources, such as articles and databases that will inform your research project:

The basic expectation for this assignment is for you to complete a research activity on how a major issue (related to difference, power, and discrimination) impacts access to education—and what we can do about it.

This is often called a problem/solution paper. You will not just be explaining the topic: you are expected to come up with solutions.

This guide is divided into several sections, which you can navigate using the tabs on the left. If you have any questions about this guide, please contact Zach Welhouse. The Ecampus LibGuide has more general information about accessing material from the OSU Libraries.
