About this product
- DescriptionReinventing Critical Pedagogy is divided into three thematic areas: 'Race, Ethnicity, and Critical Pedagogy,' which exposes the pervasiveness of white supremacy and ethnic conflict; 'Theoretical Concerns,' in which authors rethink the basic premises of capitalism, alienation, experience, religion, and social justice through a critical theory lens, a critical pedagogy staple; finally, 'Applications, Extensions, and Empirical Studies' looks at undertheorized and underrepresented areas in critical pedagogy-gender, math education, pseudo-science, global literacy, and stories of successful resistance.
