Paulo Freire and Concientizacion in Latin America.
Fletcher, Philip R.
The program of adult education presently used in Chile is studied in this paper. The historical development of the program and some of the theories behind it are discussed. The program is assessed in terms of political and economic considerations and its success as a pedagogical and social technique. Chapters deal with: (1) Latin American education; (2) the theory of the psycho-social method; and (3) literacy training in Chile; a comprehensive application of the psycho-social method. The ascendance of Marxism in Chile is discussed in an epilogue. Appendices present the Brazilian didactical materials, some mis-applications of the psycho-social method, and the Chilean didactical materials. A bibliography is provided. (KM)
