KEY STRATEGY

Not the search for one absolute (non-biased/neutral) interpretation of reality, but…

Critical Literacy

Where is this leading to?

Where is this coming from?

…the examination of origins and implications of assumptions (perspectives/lenses/discourses)

slide7

‘HIDDEN’ EDUCATIONAL AGENDA

  • Development of reflexivity
  • Moving beyond ethnocentrism
  • An ‘ethical relation’ to the other/to difference
  • Tools for independent thinking
  • Preparation for participatory democracy
  • Responsible reasoning and action
  • Balancing ‘rights and justice’ with ‘care and responsibility’
slide8

FINDINGS YEAR7 - UK

  • A different approach?
  • Yes, because we are allowed to disagree.
  • Yes, because we don’t have to find only one answer.
  • Yes, because even the teacher doesn’t know all the answers!
  • Yes, because I can think about my thoughts and say what I want to say.
  • Yes. I learned that my perspective counts.
  • Yes. We talk about different things and we think about reasons and consequences.
  • Yes. We have to listen to what each other has to say and it is fun.
  • Yes, because we learn that everyone has different thoughts.
  • I don’t know. It is confusing. I cannot figure out what the teacher wants me to say.
slide9

KEY COMPONENTS

  • UNCERTAINTY: strategic suspension of belief in universalism, acknowledgement that language and culture are always local and situated NEVER global and universal, and therefore always partial
  • SAFETY: horizontal relationships in the group, collaborative (as opposed to competitive) ethos - it is the facilitator’s responsibility to hold the space and model relationships
  • DIFFERENCE & OPENNESS: cognitive dissonance, ‘conflict’ - willingness to listen and to learn with one another
  • OPEN-ENDEDNESS: as opposed to prescribed outcomes – the aim of the exercise is reflection/exploration through dialogue, NOT consensus.

UNIVERSALISM

RELATIVISM

All perspectives are relative, therefore I cannot question or criticise any culture

My perspective is universally right, others are simply wrong, everyone should think like me

EVERYTHING GOES

PARALYSIS

NO ONE CAN INTERVENE

ABSOLUTISM

FUNDAMENTALISM

EUROCENTRISM

CRITICAL LITERACY: critical engagement with own perspectives and the perspectives of others
