Written for the reader with little or no background in educational philosophy, Finding Freedom in the Classroom demonstrates how a familiarity with critical theory can be useful to teachers in very practical ways. The text demystifies such formidable terms as hegemony, epistemology, and praxis by defining them in accessible language and by discussing how everyday life in and out of the classroom embodies these concepts. Finding Freedom can help teachers imagine and build new classroom worlds, worlds that empower students and teachers alike to actively shape – rather than passively accept – their fates.
