Liberatory Pedagogy: A BRIEF Bibliography

My approach to this project has been shaped by the philosophy outlined in Paulo Friere's Pedagogy of the Oppressed. Ira Shor's work with Friere and his extension of Friere's ideas in relation to North American higher education helped me plan the courses discussed in project. Reading Friere's and Shor's works continues to remind me that technological innovation alone will not transform the inequities in our current system of education. The following list provides a starting point for thinking about liberatory/transformative pedagogy and the teaching of composition.
