Curriculum as Public Policy

In my home country, it is not expected that teachers help in the making of curriculum.

Single stories

I am a settler. I speak the language of the colonizers, I follow their traditions, read their literature, appreciate their art and learn history the way they wrote it. I’ve learned about the “savage Indians”, the “starving Africans” and the “weak women”.

Rehinhabitation and Decolonization

What really called my attention about the reading was the loss of the meaning of paquataskamik throughout the different generations of speakers; the fact that such a comprehensive, beautiful term was losing its meaning due to the effects of colonization.

So… what’s a “good student” like?

What being a good student means has been shaped and polished by society throughout the years, this has changed a little over time, but it is, essentially, the same basic structure everybody has come to believe once they start schooling; being a “good” student is to comply with what we’re taught.

Analysis of a theorist’s quotation

“Worse yet, it [banking model] turns them [students] into ‘containers’ to be ‘filled’ by the teacher. The more completely she fills the receptacles, the better a teacher she is. The more meekly the receptacles permit themselves to be filled, the better students they are” Paulo Freire, The Pedagogy of the Oppressed, pg. 72.
