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 581 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

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

9 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This personal report of classroom experiences at an urban commuter college relates the experiences of a teacher and a group of working-class students studying the book "Utopia," which is also the metaphor for the hoped-for learning experience. The book, illustrated by excerpts from student-submitted work, shows how pedagogical theory leads to unanticipated student demands for which the teacher is initially unprepared. It explains how, entering the classroom on the first day, students exile themselves in a kind of "Siberian syndrome," filling the last rows of seats first. When the teacher attempts to build a pedagogy based on shared power and democratic authority and to mediate resistance and cross-cultural boundaries, students are wary. The book describes the working out of the processes of negotiating the curriculum, shared authority, collaborative decision making, and cogovernance between instructor and students followed by the formation of a student after-class group, and rising student expectations. The final chapters of the book are a review of what worked and what did not. (Contains 350 references.) (Ch)

Miedo y osadía : la cotidianidad del docente que se arriesga a practicar una pedagogía transformadora by Paulo Freire( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Este libro piensa una pedagogía transformadora a partir de las dificultades cotidianas de los profesores: cómo motivar a los alumnos, cómo lograr un equilibrio entre el currículo oficial y las necesidades que surgen en el aula, qué lugar dar a la lectura de los clásicos, cuál a los acontecimientos que sacuden el mundo real, cómo impulsar el debate y la reflexión. Miedo y osadía interroga las horas agitadas del aula desde la sabiduría de quienes se reconocen maestros y militantes de una sociedad más igualitaria. Pero abrazar una pedagogía liberadora, basada en el diálogo, y apartarse de la pedagogía tradicional, que supone la transferencia de conocimientos del profesor al alumno, puede suscitar muchos temores: ¿acaso no puede poner en riesgo la autoridad de quien enseña, y hacer que sus alumnos incluso sospechen de su capacidad y su experiencia? Miedo y osadía, una iluminadora conversación a fondo entre Paulo Freire y su discípulo Ira Shor, es un libro central para entender los desafíos y los riesgos de ese pasaje. Los autores sostienen que el aula es el espacio de exploración donde el conocimiento se produce, no donde simplemente se lo transmite; ponen en su justo lugar la modalidad de la "clase expositiva", que puede ser un momento fecundo en el marco de un intercambio dinámico; defienden la importancia del rigor y de la disciplina de estudio, que nunca implican memorizar información sino apropiarse de los textos al poder leer sus cruces con el contexto de producción y de lectura." --Descripción del editor
