Listening to Teachers-Listening to Students: Substantive Conversations about Resistance, Empowerment and Engagement
Zyngier, David
Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, v13 n4 p327-347 Aug 2007
This article examines contemporary research and debates about pedagogies of engagement that challenge the traditional assumptions and understandings of engagement. Three contesting epistemological constructions of student engagement are identified and examined through the contesting and resisting voices of teachers and students. The article's research suggests that an empowering and resistant pedagogy can (re)conceive student engagement so that it achieves the twin goals of social justice and academic achievement. (Contains 5 notes.)
