Problem-Posing at Work: Popular Educator's Guide
This book which explores Freirian approaches to adult education. It is for educators interested in critical reflection and social action from diverse fields: English as a Second Language and literacy, public health, labor and community organizing, health and safety education, community psychology and facilitation, high school settings, and teacher education and other professional education programs. This educators guide presents the underlying rationale for the "problem-posing" teaching approach, strategies and tools for classrooms and community settings, a case study of a problem-posing cycle by workplace educator Jenny Utech, an analysis of the role of social change pedagogy within globalization struggles, and an extensive resource list. While the book draws on prior work of the authors (including Wallerstein's Language and Culture in Conflict and Auerbach's Making Meaning, Making Change), it extends these texts to build on the accumulated knowledge and experience of educators who have been inspired by Freire's work over the past several decades.
