Shih, Yi-Huang
Journal of Education and Learning, v7 n4 p130-235 2018
Paulo Freire was a Brazilian educator, and was seen as a theorist of critical pedagogy. Freire's works have a particular significance for contemporary education in different countries. This paper aims to rethink Freire's dialogic pedagogy, and further illuminate its implications for teachers' teaching. In order to do so, firstly, we explain the importance of Freire's dialogic pedagogy. Secondly, we explore the theory & practice of dialogue. Thirdly, this study explains that the dialogue between teachers and students is a way of promoting critical consciousness. Finally, we explore dialogic pedagogy, and illuminate its implications for teachers' teaching. By reading and analyzing related studies, the implications can be summarized as follows: (1) practicing love-based teaching, (2) developing humility-based teaching, (3) nourishing hope-centered teaching, (4) enriching humor-based teaching, (5) developing silence-based teaching, (6) teachers should promotes students' critical thinking ability in their teaching, and (7) teachers deeply believe that their students will achieve a better vocation.
