Overview

Now that we have established a mutual understanding of critical theory, and the private and public purposes of schooling, etc., we will transition to learning about and practicing democratic education and critical pedagogy. This means that we will endeavor to move toward a different understanding about what the radical possibilities and purposes of education can and should be.

The following readings and CRR assignment aim to introduce you to more democratic and critical models of teaching and learning.

Note: Feel free to create a Sketchboard (instead of a written CRR) in response to the CRR questions. You can the use Screencastify to narrate how the images/symbols and connections you make answer the questions below. Then, you can submit the link to your screencast through this assignment page.

  1. What is the relationship between neoliberal education, oppression, and hegemony?

  4. Whose interests do public education serve under critical versus neoliberal pedagogy?
  5. What is a culture of questioning and why is it important?
