The hegemony of English by Donaldo P Macedo( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 1,475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exposes how the neoliberal ideology of globalization promotes dominating language policies. In the United States and Europe these policies lead to linguistic and cultural discrimination while, worldwide, they aim to stamp out a greater use and participation of national and subordinate languages in world commerce and in international organizations such as the European Union. Democracy calls for broad, multi-ethnic participation in an increasingly interconnected world
Literacy : reading the word & the world by Paulo Freire( Book )

28 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and held by 1,177 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

Chomsky on miseducation by Noam Chomsky( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Chomsky on MisEducation, Noam Chomsky builds a larger understanding of our educational needs, starting with the changing role of schools today, and then broadening our view toward new models of public education for citizenship. Chomsky weaves global technological change and the primacy of responsible media with the democratic role of schools and higher education. A truly democratic society, he argues, cannot thrive in a rapidly changing world unless our approach to education - formal and otherwise - is dramatically reformed." "Chomsky's critique of how our current educational system "miseducates" students - and his prescriptions for change - are essential reading for teachers, parents, school administrators, activists, and anyone concerned about the future."--Jacket
Literacies of power : what Americans are not allowed to know by Donaldo P Macedo( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2019 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Boston, twelve-year-old student David Spritzler faced disciplinary action from his school for his vocal questioning of the Pledge of Allegiance, which celebrates liberty and justice for all. The boy's concerns were not taken by the teacher as an opportunity to engage the class in a discussion of the country's problems, such as homelessness, which could be seen just outside on Boston's streets. Across the river at prestigious MIT, a linguistics student told her colleague that she could not take time to read literature outside of theoretical linguistics if she wanted to be a top scholar in her field. Even essays that linked linguistics to its historical and social context fell outside her diligent pursuit of theory." "What do these two seemingly disparate events have in common? According to Donaldo Macedo, they are part of an educational legacy that stifles critical thinking in favor of indoctrination and specialization. Our educational system has lost sight of its responsibility to prepare students in the kind of broad, critical thinking necessary for responsible citizenship." "Challenging conservatives like Allan Bloom and E.D. Hirsch, Macedo shows why so-called common culture literacy is a form of dominant cultural reproduction that undermines independent thought and goes against the best interests of our students. Offering a wide-ranging argument, Macedo shows why cultural literacy cannot be restricted to the acquisition of Western heritage values, which sustain an ideology that systematically negates the cultural experiences of many members of society - not only minorities but also anyone who is poor or disenfranchised. Macedo calls on his own experience as a Cape Verdean immigrant from West Africa who had to surmount the barriers imposed by the world's most entrenched monolingual system of higher education. His eloquence in this book is testimony to the very idea that critical thinking and good education are not and must not be culturally or linguistically bounded."--Jacket
Dancing with bigotry : beyond the politics of tolerance by Donaldo P Macedo( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the end of the century draws closer, one of the most pressing challenges facing educators in the United States is the specter of an "ethnic and cultural war"--A code phrase that engenders our society's licentiousness toward racism. In Dancing with Bigotry, Macedo and Bartolome use examples from the mass media, popular culture, and politics to illustrate the larger situations facing educators and how this type of argument is both ignored in much of the academic research and rhetoric. Dancing with Bigotry sheds light on the ideological mechanisms that shape and maintain the racist social order, while moving the discussion beyond the reductionist binarism of white versus black racism."--Jacket
Pedagogy of the oppressed by Paulo Freire( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in Portuguese in 1968, [this book] was translated and published in English in 1970.

Media literacy : a reader( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to help students develop the ability to interpret media as well as understand the ways they themselves consume and affectively (emotionally) invest in media. Such an appreciation encourages both critical thinking and self-analysis, as students begin to realize that everyday decisions are not necessarily made freely and rationally. While we strongly believe that humans exercise agency, we understand that there are social, cultural, and political forces that affect agency. In this context our conception of media literacy analyzes the ways our everyday decisions are encoded and inscribed by emotional and bodily commitments relating to the production of desire and mood, all of which leads, in Noam Chomsky's famous phrase, to the "manufacture of consent." These complex pedagogical and ideological issues demand rigorous skills including questioning, analyzing, interpreting, and meaning-making. From publisher description
Decolonizing foreign language education : the misteaching of English and other colonial languages by Donaldo P Macedo( )

8 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Decolonizing Foreign Language Education interrogates current foreign language and second language education techniques that prioritize white, western thought. Edited by acclaimed critical theorist and linguist Donaldo Macedo, this volume includes cutting-edge work by a select group of scholars working to rigorously challenge the marginalization of foreign language education and the displacement of indigenous languages through the teaching of colonial languages. Each chapter confronts the hold of colonialism and imperialism that inform and shape the relationship between foreign language education and literary studies by asserting that applied linguistics is just as important a tool for ESL/EFL teachers as literature or linguistic theory"--
Romance linguistics : the Portuguese context by Donaldo P Macedo( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although over 100 million people on various continents use Portuguese as their major language, the academic community in the United States has almost totally neglected the study of Portuguese linguistics. Romance Linguistics links the formal linguistic study of Portuguese with the social contaxt in which language is used. These studies, which cover a wide range of topics, including phonology, morphology, syntax, pragmatics, and discourse, comprise some of the best recent work on Portuguese. Many of the chapters challenge parts of widely recognized theoretical models of language, such as Chomsky's, while others support existing theories or linguistic concepts
The student guide to Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Antonia Darder( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antonia Darder closely examines Freire's ideas as they are articulated in Pedagogy of the Oppressed, beginning with a historical discussion of his life and a systematic discussion of the central philosophical traditions that informed his revolutionary ideas. Darder explores Freire's fundamental themes and ideas, including issues of humanization, teacher/student relationship, reflection, dialogue, praxis, and his larger emancipatory vision. The book also includes a chapter-by-chapter close reading of the text with sample questions to prompt discussion and engagement with Freire's ideas, as well as a new interview with Freire's widow, Ana Maria Araújo Freire, and a preface by Donaldo Macedo. -- from back cover
