Critical teaching and everyday life by Ira Shor( Book )

19 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A product of years of open admissions teaching, this book explores questions relevant to lower and higher, elite and nonelite, traditional and nontraditional educational settings. The work is committed to learning through dialogue. It poses alienation and mass culture as the key learning problems of students, and develops critical literacy as the foundation for studying any discipline. From a discussion of anti-liberatory forces, the essay goes on to present teaching modes that challenge the social limits of thought and action. Pedagogical theory is examined alongside a political economy of schooling. (Author/MSE)

When students have power : negotiating authority in a critical pedagogy by Ira Shor( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What happens when teachers share power with students? In this profound book, Ira Shor--the inventor of critical pedagogy in the United States--relates the story of an experiment that nearly went out of control. Shor provides the reader with a reenactment of one semester that shows what really can happen when one applies the theory and democratizes the classroom. This is the story of one class in which Shor tried to fully share with his students control of the curriculum and of the classroom. After twenty years of practicing critical teaching, he unexpectedly found himself faced with a student uprising that threatened the very possibility of learning. How Shor resolves these problems, while remaining true to his commitment to power-sharing and radical pedagogy, is the crux of the book. Unconventional in both form and substance, this deeply personal work weaves together student voices and thick descriptions of classroom experience with pedagogical theory to illuminate the power relations that must be negotiated if true learning is to take place
