Literacy : reading the word & the world by Paulo Freire( Book )

28 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paulo Freire and Donaldo Macedo invite us to re-examine the literacy crisis. They see literacy not merely as a technical skill to be acquired but as a form of cultural politics. Literacy is viewed as a set of practices that either empowers or disempowers people, and is analysed according to whether it serves to reproduce existing social formations or serves as a set of cultural practices promoting democratic change. In Literacy: Reading the Word and the World, they present not only a reconstructed theory of literacy, but concrete historical analyses of campaigns for literacy in regions such as Cape Verde, Sao Tome and Principe, and Guinea-Bissau. They also give a critique of old views of literacy, with pointers to new alternatives. In earlier works such as Pedagogy of the Oppressed and The Politics of Education Paulo Freire has shown how language and power are inextricably intertwined; in this new book he and his co-author expand our definition of what it means to read and, describing actual techniques used by Freire in his literacy campaigns, point the way not only to worldwide literacy but to real social transformation

Pedagogy of the heart by Paulo Freire( Book )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book represents some of the last writings by Paulo Freire, who has been acclaimed one of the most important educators of the 20th century. Pedagogy of the Heart is filled with Freire's reminiscences of his early life and meditations "under my mango tree." Many of these will be familiar themes to those who have walked with Freire before. For those coming to his work for the first time, Pedagogy of the Heart will open new doors to the interrelations of education and political struggle. Further enhancing the text are substantive notes by Ana Maria Araujo Freire
Pedagogy in process : the letters to Guinea-Bissau by Paulo Freire( Book )

18 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pedagogy in Process presents a first-hand account of the most comprehensive attempt yet to put into practice Paulo Freire's theory of education within a real societal setting. When Guinea Bissau on the West African coast declared independence in 1973 the rate of illiteracy in its adult population was ninety percent. The new government faced the enormous task of educating its citizens. With Freire as collaborator and advisor the government launched a huge grass-roots literacy campaign and this book is Freire's memoir of that campaign. Those familiar with Freire's work will identify his ongoing insistence on the unity between theory and practice, mental and manual work, and past and present experience. This is essential reading for anyone interested Freire's revolutionary ideas on education and the transformative power they hold when applied to society and the classroom -- Back cover

Pedagogy of the city by Paulo Freire( Book )

28 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is primarily comprised of interviews that took place between the first months of Paulo Freire's assuming leadership of the bureau of education in Sao Paulo, and the beginnings of his second year - including his farewell to the bureau upon his retirement." "The highly provocative observations herein confirm a central imperative, namely, that public education must play a decisive role in the continuing reformation of a democratic society. Though written from the viewpoint of an authority in another culture, the implications of Paulo Freire's dialogues reach all the way to our own inner-city schools." "Pedagogy of the City offers a plan of action for the transformation of schooling: the creation of schools that truly represent and respect the student; the creation of schools where students and their life experiences are a curriculum in interaction with teachers who can truly help them; and more." "Twenty years after the landmark U.S. publication of Pedagogy of the Oppressed, this new Pedagogy of the City will help to stimulate anew the thinking of teachers and all concerned citizens."--Jacket
Pedagogy of indignation by Paulo Freire( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: This is the first English translation of the last book written by Paulo Freire. The book begins with a series of three deeply moving reflective "pedagogical letters" to the reader about the role of education for one's development of self. He also speaks directly to the reader about the relationship to risk in one's life and he delves deeper than before into the daily life tensions between freedom and authority. Building on these interconnected themes, Freire sharpens our sense of the critical faculties of children and how a teacher may work with children to help them realize their potential intellectually and as human beings. Subsequent chapters explore these topics in relation to the wider social world: the social constitution of the self in the work of educators; critical citizenship; and the necessity of teaching "from a position" about the world that goes beyond literacy programs to include the legacy of colonialism in peoples' resistance movements today. The book's interludes, written by Ana Maria Araújo Freire, reveal Paulo's thoughts about the content of this book as he was completing it during the last weeks and days of his life

Pedagogy of hope : reliving Pedagogy of the oppressed by Paulo Freire( Book )

23 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Pedagogy of Hope, Freire explores his best-known analytical themes - with even deeper understanding and a greater wisdom. Certainly, all of these themes have to be analyzed as elements of a body of critical, liberationist pedagogy. In the present book, we come to understand the author's pedagogical thinking even better, through the critical seriousness, humanistic objectivity, and engaged subjectivity which, in all of Freire's books, are always wedded to a unique creative innovativeness
Teachers as cultural workers : letters to those who dare teach by Paulo Freire( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Freire?s words challenge all who teach to reflect critically on the meaning of the act of teaching as well as the meaning of learning. He shows why a teacher?s success depends on a permanent commitment to learning and training, as part of an ongoing appraisal of classroom practice. By opening themselves to recognition of the different roads students take in order to learn, teachers 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.In essays new to this edition, well-known and respected educators Peter McLaren, Joe Kincheloe, and Shirley Steinberg add their reflections on the relevance of Freire?s work to the study and practice of education across the globe
