Critical Teaching and Everyday Life

Critical Teaching and Everyday Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this unique book on education, Shor develops teaching theory side-by-side with a political analysis of schooling. Drawing on the work of Paulo Freire, he offers the first practical and theoretical guide to Freirean methods for American classrooms. Central to his method is a commitment to learning through dialogue and to exploring themes from everyday life. He poses alienation and mass culture as key obstacles to learning, and establishes critical literacy as a foundation for studying any subject.

About the Author

Ira Shor, an English professor at Staten Island College, City University of New York, has been teaching and writing about education for fifteen years.
