Teaching against the Grain: Texts for a Pedagogy of Possibility

Synopsis

Conceiving of pedagogy as a form of cultural politics and teachers, therefore, as cultural workers, Simon offers a fresh vision of the notion of pedagogy. Grounded in an ethical and political stance devoted to the advancement of human dignity, Simon reflexively considers the basis on which teachers form their own dispositions and feelings, and urges them to consider not only what they might do as teachers but what social visions are supported by their practices. In this pedagogy of possibility Simon throws light on the significance of his theoretical commitments as applied to educational practice.
