Why We Teach What We Teach Or The Purposes Of Education & Critical Reading Theory

For those who attended today’s session, I extend to you my deepest gratitude for sharing your time with me, as well as my apologies for the fact that we did not cover all of the learning outcomes. We will resume our dialogue next week at the same time and location. Today my colleagues and I had an interesting discussion about the purpose(s) of education. Others may or may not have hidden agendas, but my explicit agenda is freedom and social justice. The primary tool I employ to teach for freedom and social justice is Critical Reading Theory. If you are not familiar, visit the link provided below and join the discussion…Why do you teach?
