Added: 31 Aug 2016 Contributor: Scoilnet Resource type: Guide/notes

Scholarly article of over 2,000 words looking at Freire's key concepts in education. Covers his views on: democratic teacher-student relationships; education as a political act; and co-construction of knowledge.

How it maps to the curriculum

Politics & Society

Suggestions for use: This is a good article to read to learn about Freire's theories of education. It is not really student-friendly but would be essential reading for teachers.
