Last Article -- Ira Shor
As you read the last article of the semester -- an excerpt from Ira Shor's Empowering Education -- I think you will find that it clearly resonates with so many things we have read this semester. It should be easy to make some connections to our other texts.
Shor is one of the more important theorists in the field of critical pedagogy. His work on schooling in a democratic society is the foundation of so much of what we talked about in this class. The chapters are a little long, but read the first one really closely. You can skim a little on the second one. Enjoy! See you Tuesday!!
