just finished freire's 'pedagogy of the oppressed'. its framing of a co-operative and problem-based education process both speaks to my approach to teaching and pushes me to extend it. i particularly appreciate the focus on praxis, supported by freire's argument that 'human activity is theory and practice; it is reflection and action'. @doktorb thanks for the push to finally read it.

@benbyrne Freire is great! When I was teaching high school his argument that people's lived experiences should be treated as expertise completely changed how I saw the relationship between the classroom and community. Also his idea that learning must manifest through people's collective capacity to make a meaningful impact on their situation helped me connect the dots between by personal politics and my professional practice. Writing this is making me want to re-read it!!
