""Wink has keenly, precisely, and systematically created a venue for growth toward social justice and equality to be considered, discussed, and enacted.""
--McFadyen Christensen, University of Alabama at Birmingham

""I very much admire Joan Wink and her courage to share so many personal experiences as she goes toward deeper understanding of transforming teaching and learning. I treasure her book for this reason.""
--Evangelina B. Jones, San Diego State University

This powerful and accessible analysis of the often difficult rhetoric of critical pedagogy argues that critical pedagogy opens the door to a broader and deeper perspective on teaching and learning in the classroom and the community. The text strongly encourages teachers to adapt teaching beliefs and strategies continuously to meet the needs of today's classrooms. "Critical Pedagogy: Notes from the Real World," Third Edition, offers thoughtful examination of the theoretical models of critical pedagogy in an engaging, understandable writing style. The author answers questions about the place of critical pedagogy in the world. This new edition provides greater emphasis on families, high-stakes testing, teacher accountability, mandatory curriculum, and bilingual education.
