Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Upon its recent publication in Portuguese, Paulo Freires newest book became an instant success. This English translation is sure to meet with similar acclaim. In Teachers as Cultural Workers, Freire speaks directly to teachers about the lessons learned from a lifetime of experience as an educator and social theorist. No other book so cogently explains the implications for classroom practice of Freires latest ideas and the pathbreaking theories found in Pedagogy of the Oppressed and other treatises.This book challenges all who teach to reflect critically on the meaning of the act of teaching as well as the meaning of learning. Freire shows why a teachers success depends on a permanent commitment to learning and training, as part of an ongoing appraisal of classroom practice. By observing the curiosity of students and the manner through which students develop strategies for learning, the teacher is helped in discovering doubts, successes, and the teachers mistakes. When teachers open themselves to recognize the different roads students take in order to learn, they will become involved in a continual reconstruction of their own paths of curiosity, opening the doors to habits of learning that will benefit everyone in the classroom.

Book News Annotation:

The last work by a world-renowned Brazilian education scholar, originally published in Portuguese. Freire speaks directly to teachers about lessons learned from a lifetime of experience as an educator and social theorist, and explains the implications for classroom application of his ideas and theories found in his Pedagogy of the Oppressed and other treatises.
