Engaging Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of Possibility is a cross-cultural case study of how people experience schooling in relation to their sense of time and optimism. César Augusto Rossatto examines how real-life situations and social structures influence people's construction of notions of possibilities. Positionality, or perceptions about life and projections of the future, has great impact on students' success in school. These perceptions-how they interpret the past, live in the present, and foresee the future-are, in turn, greatly influenced by their intellectual locality. By the same token, how educators see their position in the world and their classroom "roles" determines their operandum beliefs. The findings of this study suggest that a curriculum based on Freirean critical pedagogy and time theories can be used to enhance time-consciousness values in contemporary social life.

About the Author:

César Augusto Rossatto teaches in the College of Education at the University of Texas, El Paso.

Review:

Draws on the work of the Brazilian education theorist in a study of how students' experience of schooling reflects their sense of time and optimism. (The Chronicle of Higher Education)

Rossatto studied children in Brazil and the US and mapped a Freirian frame of desire and optimism into a conceptual framework of Transformative Optimism, Blind Optimism, Fatalist Optimism, and Resilient Optimism to better understand how classrooms, schools, and communities can sustain pedagogy of optimism to serve all students. Recommended. (CHOICE)

In this pedagogical study, Rossatto addresses the ways students perceive and use time as well as the variation in their optimism about schooling. He demonstrates the influence of social structures and experience on students' notions of possibilities and educators' beliefs about teaching. He advocates a curriculum based on Freirean critical pedagogy and time theories to enhance time-consciousness values. (Reference and Research Book News)
