Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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.

7 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Malcoln_Rodgers on December 26, 2011
Format: Paperback
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.
