"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."--Jacket

"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 )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 486 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

Teachers as cultural workers : letters to those who dare teach by Paulo Freire( Book )

43 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En este libro, Paulo Freire les habla a los docentes sobre los aspectos mas delicados de la practica educativa, y lo hace con la firmeza y la generosidad que caracterizan su estilo. En contra de los tabues que terminan produciendo profesores debiles y vacilantes, defiende la necesidad de una autoridad que nada tiene que ver con la arrogancia y que, por el contrario, permite la confianza del maestro en sus propios saberes y convicciones y en su capacidad para vincularse con los alumnos y proponerles otros mundos posibles. Las cartas recuperan el sabor del dialogo y el valor de la transmision que surge de le experiencia."--Amazon
