The Art of Critical Pedagogy - Possibilities for Moving from Theory to Practice in Urban Schools

Author(s): Jeffrey M. R. Duncan-Andrade; Ernest Morrell


This book furthers the discussion concerning critical pedagogy and its practical applications for urban contexts. It addresses two looming, yet under-explored questions that have emerged with the ascendancy of critical pedagogy in the educational discourse: (1) What does critical pedagogy look like in work with urban youth? and (2) How can a systematic investigation of critical work enacted in urban contexts simultaneously draw upon and push the core tenets of critical pedagogy? Addressing the tensions inherent in enacting critical pedagogy - between working to disrupt and to successfully navigate oppressive institutionalized structures, and between the practice of critical pedagogy and the current standards-driven climate - The Art of Critical Pedagogyseeks to generate authentic internal and external dialogues among educators in search of texts that offer guidance for teaching for a more socially just world.
