The famous Brazilian educator Paulo Freire has influenced
educators, teachers and students in a broad tapestry of contexts
and countries, as he challenged conventional thinking on how
teachers ought to teach and learners ought to learn. By making his
ideas accessible and relevant, this insightful and
thought-provoking text draws out the relevance and topicality of
Freire's work and applies this to a wide range of educational
settings, from adult education, through schools, to early years
Themes covered include:
- the lasting impact of illiteracy;
- the benefits and potential in becoming literate;
- literacy, language and power;
- the differences between banking and dialogic education;
- the social and political nature of learning.
- what kind of teaching and learning do we want?
Using a variety of practical examples and case studies,
Introducing Freire is an essential guide to the work of one of the
most significant figures in education in the last century.
Fascinating and accessible, this book is for anyone interested in
teaching and learning, poverty and affluence, power and
powerlessness, and society and change.
