This book includes a detailed explanation of the methodologies leading to Pedagogy of the Oppressed. It would be a good "pre-reading" book or post-reading book for those interested in Ped. of the Oppressed. It really brings to life the methods to the wonderful and loving pedagogy that Freire exudes throughout his work. This is a must have for those who buy Ped. of Opp.

A must read for anyone interested in systemic socioeconomic reform. The ideas here are still fresh, Freire's thinking is clear and penetrating, and both his evaluation of cultural challenges and his proposals for resolution are still profoundly relevant. Although the ideas here have the same central themes and flavor as those in Pedagogy of the Oppressed, here they are more developed, well-rounded and I found them to be more persuasive than that seminal work. For those unfamiliar with Freire, this book captures the essence of his insights; this is not about "education" per se, but about revolution and transformation into more enlightened and empowering democratic perspectives and civic structures, using a participatory, "context-aware" and culturally self-critical consciousness that allows everyone involved equal footing and inherent value.

Paulo Freire is one of the unsung heros in the field of education. Here he is again, writing such terse sentences that they have to be re-read several times to absorb all their nutrients. Just like his brilliant Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Education for Critical Consciousness is an antidote to the current U.S. crisis of ignorance and consumer-insanity.

This resource looks at dialectical thinking and how it brings liberation from the historical, cultural and natural past of the individual which causes him/her to experience freedom.

I'm going to give this book 4 stars, because it's easily got at least 5 stars worth of good ideas, but i'm taking one away, because it's overly neurotic, verbose and complex. he gets lost in the rush of words and the parenthetical explanations which really hurts the clarity of his overall message. He kind of just needs to move things along and make his point, then he could be free to speak as much as he would like on all the other stuff. Even Friere himself admitted much later on, that some of his stuff was inaccessible. it must be hard to love all the great philosophers and not aspire to write the same kind of neurotic diatribe. The book has it's moments, in fact, it has more than it's share. All I'm saying is, it's not for everybody.
