Since its publication, The Critical Pedagogy Reader has firmly established itself as the leading collection of classic and contemporary essays by the major thinkers in the field of critical pedagogy. While retaining its comprehensive introduction, this thoroughly revised second edition includes more fully developed section introductions, updated and expanded bibliographies, and up-to-date classroom questions. The book is arranged topically around such issues as class, racism, gender/sexuality, language and literacy, and classroom issues for ease of usage and navigation. In addition, two entirely new sections focused on teacher education and critical issues beyond the classroom provide readers with the all-important tools needed to put critical pedagogical theory into practice in their own classrooms. Carefully attentive to both theory and practice, this new edition remains the definitive source for teaching and learning about critical pedagogy.
