The late Paulo Freire, of Brazil, is perhaps the most influential education writer of our times. His many books, which include the classics Pedagogy of the Oppressed and Pedagogy of Freedom, have been translated into more than 40 languages.
Donaldo Macedo is Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.
“Critical theory in education has too often lapsed into an intellectual posturing detached from real possibilities for transformation and thus failed to challenge neoliberal fatalism about how things ‘are’ or ‘need to be.’ Ever persuasive and impressive, Freire takes up the challenge and in the act shows us not just the possibility but the reality of a ‘pedagogy of hope.’”
―Jim Gee, Arizona State University

Book Description Paradigm. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW PRINT ON DEMAND., Daring to Dream: Toward a Pedagogy of the Unfinished, Paulo Freire, Donaldo Macedo, Ana Maria Araujo Freire, -- New from the author of the million-selling Pedagogy of the Oppressed -- In an era when teachers and states are resisting high-stakes testing, this new book from world-renowned author Paulo Freire could not be more timely. Freire's uplifting message urges students, parents, and teachers to discover new horizons of hope and possibility for a better world. Connecting the personal with the political, Freire's voice is as profound as it is inspiring, guiding us through the everyday acts of observation and critical thinking that link personal creativity with the prospects of a just and more humane world. Freire's liberating pedagogy resists forms of fatalism reproduced in traditional education discourses that too often mechanize the act of knowing. Freire challenges all educators to embrace history as possibility, where the act of analyzing reality opens up space for critical reflection and creativity. Such acts, he shows, are not isolated and individual, but integral to larger forces for change. One's capacity to dream, to reach, and to engage with a troubled world are the essence of a meaningful and liberatory pedagogy. Bookseller Inventory # B9781594510526
