Henry Giroux: The Necessity of Critical Pedagogy in Dark Times

Henry Giroux: The Necessity of Critical Pedagogy in Dark Times | philosophy and everything else | Scoop.it

"Since the 1980s, right wing and conservative educational theorists have both attacked colleges of education and called for alternative routes to teacher certification. They have emphasized the practical and experiential, seeking to gut the critical nature of theory, pedagogy, and knowledge taught in colleges of education as well as in public schools and university classrooms. In effect, there is an attempt to deskill teaches by removing matters of conception from implementation. Teachers are no longer asked to be creative, to think critically, or to be creative. On the contrary, they have been reduced to the keeper of methods, implementers of an audit culture, and removed from assuming autonomy in their classrooms. According to conservatives, the great sin teachers colleges have committed in the past few decades is that they have focused too much on theory and not enough on clinical practice—and by 'theory,' they mean critical pedagogy and other theories that enable prospective teachers to situate school knowledge, practices, and modes of governance within wider historical, social, cultural, economic, and political contexts. Conservatives wants public schools and colleges to focus on 'practical' methods in order to prepare teachers for an 'outcome-based' education system, which is code for pedagogical methods that are as anti-intellectual as they are politically conservative. This is a pedagogy useful for creating armies of number crunchers and for downgrading teachers to supervising the administration of standardized tests, but not much more. Reducing pedagogy to the teaching of methods and data-driven performance indicators that allegedly measure scholastic ability and improve student achievement is nothing short of scandalous. Rather than provide the best means for confronting 'difficult truths about the inequality of America’s political economy,' such a pedagogy produces the swindle of 'blaming inequalities on individuals and groups with low test scores.' The conservative call for practicality must be understood as an attempt to sabotage the forms of teacher and student self-reflection required for a quality education, all the while providing an excuse for a prolonged moral coma and flight from responsibility." | by Henry Giroux

Philosophy for children boosts their progress at school

Philosophy for children boosts their progress at school | philosophy and everything else | Scoop.it
A programme to teach young children the basics of philosophical thinking in UK schools has been shown to help them progress in maths and reading. A new study evaluated the use of the Philosophy for Children (P4C) programme in which primary school children are guided through discussions of questions such as “Should a healthy heart be donated to a person who has not looked after themselves?” or “Is it acceptable for people to wear their religious symbols at work places?” The programme is intended to help children become more willing and able to question, reason, construct arguments and collaborate.

A randomised controlled trial in 48 primary schools compared more than 1,500 pupils who took philosophy lessons over the course of a year with a further 1,500 who didn’t, but then took the lessons the following year. The children who had the philosophy lessons first improved their maths and reading by around an extra two months' of progress compared to those children who weren’t taking part. And the poorest children made the most progress of all.

Brady says that "the main task of educating is to help students make more sense of the world, themselves, and others." Specialization has its place, but not more so than generalization. We must all have a discipline within transdisciplinarity. We mut use both sides of our brains: the focused left hemisphere and the wholistic right hemisphere, as McGilchrist recommends.

Sustainability science resonates with me as I imagine how to apply what I have learned through studying transdisciplinarity. Clearly the ability to visualize cause and effect in CVEs can be transformational for learning and effective when committed contributors explore possibility. Sherren's post and this Sustainability blog are worth monitoring for the activism created from engaged minds and hearts. I have not yet read Sherren's paper that includes colleagues Fischer and Hanspach.Need library access.

Metrosophy: Philosophy and the City

Metrosophy: Philosophy and the City | philosophy and everything else | Scoop.it
Where is philosophy? This is not a typo. What is philosophy is a common question. But rarely do we wonder where it is, physically speaking. Imagine a philosopher at work. Where does this scene take place?

Philosophy is typically depicted as a solitary activity conducted in remote natural settings — a hut next to a fjord, a clearing in the middle of a forest, a cave on the slope of a mountain, or, these days, a rocking chair on a porch in a quaint college town. Certainly, some great thinkers (Wittgenstein, Heidegger and Nietzsche among them) were responsible for promoting this bucolic ethos. But even a superficial familiarity with the history of Western philosophy reveals that the city is virtually a necessary condition for the possibility of doing theoretical work, which may then be carried on in other, less hectic places.

Keith Hamon's curator insight, September 12, 2013 11:23 AM

"While few would doubt the value of disciplined thinking, isn’t our goal also to prepare students for lifelong learning in an undisciplined world?"


Yes, that is one goal, but it is a quite different goal from the one that formed higher ed since the middle of the last century: to prepare for a career, which reinforced disciplinary thinking. Perhaps that is changing as well, for "In their study into the popularity of double degrees, higher education researchers Wendy Russell, Sara Dolnicar and Marina Ayoub suggested that: double degree programs have significant untapped potential in preparing graduates for employment. The potential benefit, they argue, is that graduates develop “transdisciplinary skills” that are highly valued by employers. Transdisciplinary thinkers take a unique approach to solving problems. They draw information from diverse sources and seek collaborations to produce “socially robust knowledge”. However, the way most combined and double degrees are established does not foster transdisciplinary learning."


Juxtaposing two disciplines does not make for transdisciplinarity; rather, transdisciplinary, or complex (Morin), thinking does.

Concerns about dismissing the value of ciritcal thinking toward theoretical anemia. Recommendation to explore the work of Richard Bernstein re: pragmatism, critical theory and hermeneutics. Be like the French and play with ideas to become a pragmatic fallibilist capable of acting while constantly questioning one's assumptions.


More contrast with William Perry and Edgar Morin.
