Viewing Critical Communication Pedagogy through a Cinematic Lens
Kahl, David H., Jr.
Communication Teacher, v27 n2 p99-103 2013
This article describes an activity in which students of instructional communication (1) learn about hegemony in the classroom; and (2) analyze the pedagogical behavior of a cinematic teacher in the movie "Half Nelson." Through this analysis, students will gain a heightened awareness of hegemony and will identify avenues for praxis. Doing so will aid students in examining the intersections of hegemony, praxis, and conscientization (taking action against oppression in one's life).
