This text is an accessible analysis of critical pedagogy that articulates multiple ways of applying its principles in various contexts. Critical Pedagogy: Notes from the Real World, Fourth Edition, presents a thoughtful examination of the theoretical models of critical pedagogy in an engaging, understandable writing style.
With a clear, first-person narrative, Joan Wink offers a powerful and accessible analysis of the often difficult rhetoric of critical pedagogy, arguing that critical pedagogy opens the door to a broader and deeper perspective on teaching and learning in the classroom and the community. The text strongly encourages teachers to continuously adapt teaching beliefs and strategies to meet the needs of today's classrooms. The fourth edition provides greater attention to an expanded view of identity, coverage of new and emerging critical theorists, and an action plan for how readers can move into advocacy and activism.
What reviewers have to say:
“Particularly, I am drawn to [Wink’s] lucid explanations of key concepts of critical pedagogy and her motivating approach to moving the reader from transmission understandings of knowledge to transformative.”
Deanna L. Fassett, San Jose State University
“Parts of the text read as if the author was talking aloud with herself as she sorts through the dilemmas facing teachers today. The writing style creates a dialogue with the reader and it truly becomes more than just one-sided.”
Carrie M. Dale, Eastern Illinois University
