RECLAIMING TEACHING SYLLABUS

CHRISTINA BROWN MARTHA MARTHA CHAUYA ASHLEY & SHEARER EDL CHRISTINA 606 2017 BROWN, CHUAYA ASHLEYFALL SHEARE


editor's note

teacher's note This syllabus is primarily for public school educators, administrators, and students. However it is also beneficial for parents, and other stakeholders impacted by the bureaucracy of the public education system. This syllabus should serve as a guiding tool to transform hostile environments for teachers into training grounds for critical thinking, and knowledge sharing for both students and educators. This innovation could lead to more enhanced student learning by allowing students and teachers to work together in order to form a more direct link to real life learning. Students will therefore become more engaged and invested in their own learning which will lead them to become more proactive with their own educational values and needs.

RECLAIMING TEACHING THROUGH STUDENT CHOICE TOOLS


"I think oftentimes what happens is we conflate the idea that certain things should be discussed in a classroom with the notion that a teacher is going to indoctrinate students with their own beliefs. And I think that that is not actually what critical pedagogy is. Critical pedagogy is this idea that you are going to create a space in your classroom in which students are able to develop their own sense of critical consciousness and engagement with the world. And what does it mean for me as a critically and culturally responsive educator to provide the space for you to understand the social and historical and political context that led us to this moment, where people's arguments on either side are stemming from?
