Pedagogy of Indignation
Freire, Paulo
Paradigm Publishers
The last book written by Paulo Freire before his death, "Pedagogy of Indignation" speaks to the necessity of making and remaking one's self throughout a lifetime, the role of education in personal development, and the daily life tensions between freedom and authority. The book sharpens our sense of the critical faculties of children. It shows how a teacher, drawing upon his or her own depth as a person, may work with children to help them realize their potential intellectually and as human beings. These topics are also explored in relation to the wider world: the social constitution of the self in the work of educators; critical citizenship; and the necessity of teaching "from a position" about the world that transcends literacy programs to include the legacy of colonialism in peoples' resistance movements today.
