Podcast Ep 8: An Introduction To Critical Pedagogy In The Classroom

by TeachThought Staff

Critical Pedagogy and Critical Literacy both involve the idea of thinking carefully about human and social contexts: Who am I, what do I need to know, and how can I use that knowledge to improve the world around me?

In this conversation, I speak to Dr. Elizabeth Bishop, Deputy Director at the Center for Institutional and Social Change at Columbia Law School. We discuss social improvement, equity, and how teachers can begin to think about critical pedagogy for a more authentic and human educational experience.
