Teaching toward freedom : moral commitment and ethical action in the classroom by William Ayers ( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 934 libraries worldwide
"In Teaching Toward Freedom Ayers illuminates the hope as well as the conflict that characterize the entire project of education: how it can be used in authoritarian and dehumanizing ways in the service of the state, the church, or a restrictive existing social order - an idea he abhors - or, as he envisions it, as an undertaking to help students become more fully human, more engaged, more participatory, more free. Drawing on his own classroom experiences and those of his many colleagues, as well as on popular culture, film, poetry, and novels, Ayers redraws the lines concerning how we teach and why, and the surprising things we uncover when we allow students to become visible, vocal authors of their own texts and creators of their own lives."--Jacket.
