Echoing the critical work of Paulo Freire, Ira Shor in this book offers a critique and practical guide to teaching outside of the banking method of education.
More importantly though is his focus on the concept of empowerment.
In other words, empowerment occurs through the interconnected relationship between the self and society. As a teacher, I found much value in Shor’s practical guidance through his approach to a critical, empowered education. Since knowledge is derived from action, our classrooms should open the space for our students to experience knowledge and help shape it.
Therefore, by experiencing knowledge through dialogic classroom processes, students will have the skills to upon or with knowledge. Educatin, if you are looking for a practical guide e,powering an empowering education for your students, pick up this book. Shor’s detailed accounts of his experiences provide a road-map for good practices. I often find myself referring back to this book as I begin a new semester. I use this book for graduate reach in Education.
One person found this helpful. Read during a course. Wonderful to discuss and chew over. The class was tough, but I thoroughly enjoyed the material. Shor doesn’t bring much to the table here. I can’t say this is useful except as a window into Shor’s thinking, which is not especially compelling. Professor Ira Shor, snor his mentor Paulo Freire, denounces the current-traditional model of banking education–the practice of teaching where the instructor “deposits” information “into” the students.
In the current-traditional model, the input is always selected by the authority, or teacher, and the student is a passive recipient of knowledge which has been shro as both meaningful and useful for the student’s future development. Professor Shor argues that this current-traditional model of teaching methodology not only places the “content” of the course beyond any control of the student, but it also prescibes the method of delivery for our students.
I recommend the book to teachers and parents: The examples which Shor offers in this interesting and helpful book have withstood the test of time. Excellent work, still relevant! See all 7 reviews.
