Description - Daring to Dream by Paulo 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 fromworld-renowned author Paulo Freire could not be more timely. Freire's uplifting messageurges 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 educationdiscourses 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.
