Widely misunderstood and misinterpreted at its most basic level, critical pedagogy provides a lens through which educators and students are better able to examine and interact with the real, underlying power relationships that structure our world. Taking up the ever-shifting cultural and political landscape in the United States, Presence of Mind addresses how power manifests itself within and across different social and educational terrain and, covering a number of contemporary topics and polemics that are central to teaching educational theory and practice. Pepi Leistyna argues that it is imperative that both students and teachers take ownership of educational practice by developing theoretical frameworks that historically and socially situate the deeply embedded roots of racism, discrimination, violence, and disempowerment in this country to better understand their roles as educators and citizens. Featuring dialogues with Paulo Freire and Noam Chomsky and a glossary of critical pedagogical terms, Presence of Mind is an accessible introduction to the basic tenets of critical pedagogy, as well as an advancement in thought in social theory.
