Discover the philosophy behind this important concept, techniques to apply to your teaching, and signs that show when it's actually working.

Show Notes

You might have heard Dana mention that she brought some show and tell... it was a copy of Paulo Freire's seminal Pedagogy of the Oppressed. Here's the citation:

Freire, P. (2000). Pedagogy of the oppressed (30th anniversary ed.). New York: Continuum.

Some additional resources:

  • Learn more about Freire's work at the Freire Institute's website.
  • A past episode where we discussed building a community of learners with a welcoming syllabus.
