Pedagogy of the Oppressed

Freire

Pedagogy of the Oppressed  by Paulo Freire, proposes a pedagogy with a new relationship between teacher, student, and society. Dedicated to the oppressed and based on his own experience helping Brazilian adults to read and write, Freire includes a detailed Marxist class analysis in his exploration of the relationship between the colonizer and the colonized. Freire’s argument is that there needs to a pedagogy that treats the learner as a co-creator of knowledge. Pedagogy of the Oppressed is considered to be one of the foundational works in the area of critical pedagogy.
