Example text

CP is a way of life. It probes deeply into our roles as teachers, students, citizens, human beings. This is the reason why it is impossible to give simple prescriptions about how to do CP: ‘I doubt I can teach someone how to do critical pedagogy. We do not do critical pedagogy; we live it’ (Wink, 1997: 103). This characteristic provides for a strong link between CP and ethics. The notion of ethics here is both observant of universal human rights and attentive to particular stories located in specific contexts: Ethics must be seen as a central concern of critical pedagogy.

Reflective thinking, in this instance, is embedded in experience in that it is about a problem that arises and the search for its solution: . . reflective thinking, in distinction from other operations to which we apply the name of thought, involves (1) a state of doubt, hesitation, perplexity, mental difficulty, in which thinking originates, and (2) an act of searching, hunting, inquiring, to find material that will resolve the doubt, settle and dispose of the perplexity. (Dewey, 1933: 12) In this way, Dewey saw the relationship between theory and practice as a web that is continuously made and remade.

Quoted in McLaren, 1995: 34–5) Viewed in this light, pedagogy informs teaching by giving it meaning and purpose. Pedagogy is about cultural and political engagement and transforms teaching and learning into a form of cultural politics since it provides the opportunity for both teachers and students to construct their views of themselves and of the world in a proactive attitude that reaches beyond the interpretative endeavour. Second, CP is described here as a movement because of it being an ‘ever-evolving critical pedagogy’ (Giroux, 1997b: xii) and of not being a monolithic body of theory or practice.
