Illustrate your passion for teaching your content area and how you will be
a change agent in education.
(Foley, 2001) educational philosophy is about education as freedom,where
individuals can deal critically and creatively with their reality so
they may 'see the world unveiled'" (Freire, 1993, 21).
and every educator must strive to be an effective change agent." (Fullan,
1993, p 13)
Pedagogy is a way of thinking about, negotiating, and transforming
the relationship among classroom teaching, the production of knowledge,
the institutional structures of the school, and the social and material
relations of the wider community, society, and nation state" (Mc
laren, 1998, p45).
pedagogy is a complex notion that asks much of the practitioners who
embrace it. Teaching a critical pedagogy involves more than learning
a few pedagogical techniques and the knowledge required by the curriculum,
the standards, or the textbook. Critical teachers must understand not
only a wide body of subject matter but also the political structure
of the school" (Kincheloe, 2008, p2).
