This book furthers the discussion concerning critical pedagogy and its practical applications for urban contexts.

It addresses two looming, yet under-explored questions that have emerged with the ascendancy of critical pedagogy in the educational discourse: (1) What does critical pedagogy look like in work with urban youth? and (2) How can a systematic investigation of critical work enacted in urban contexts simultaneously draw upon and push the core tenets of critical pedagogy? Addressing the tensions inherent in enacting critical pedagogy - between working to disrupt and to successfully navigate oppressive institutionalized structures, and between the practice of critical pedagogy and the current standards-driven climate - The Art of Critical Pedagogy seeks to generate authentic internal and external dialogues among educators in search of texts that offer guidance for teaching for a more socially just world.

    As I listened to Jeffrey speak, I thought to myself He is the type of teacher I aspire to be. After I shook his hand and gave him a copy of some of my recently published poems to read on his flight back to Oakland, I went to the book table and bought this book with the intention of making my quiet aspiration an appreciable reality.

    Great primer for understanding critical pedagogy. If you are looking for a quick "how to become a critical educator" primer this is not the book for you. The focus is more on the thought process behind how and why the researchers did what they did. I think I would've benefitted from this book more while in undergrad or during my teacher ed program. In reading it as a relatively experienced teacher it did re-energize me a bit in thinking about what my teaching is missing. It's also a good reminde Great primer for understanding critical pedagogy.

I think I would've benefitted from this book more while in undergrad or during my teacher ed program. In reading it as a relatively experienced teacher it did re-energize me a bit in thinking about what my teaching is missing. It's also a good reminder that the key to critical pedagogy is its most difficult part, praxis. The authors do reflect critically on the applicability of the book, especially regarding the participatory action research they conducted in LA and the Bay Area. Is critical pedagogy more about the pedagogy or the pedagogues? Finally, while the focus of the book is on making students critical pedagogues, an unanswered question is to what degree can you develop teachers who are critical pedagogues in today's educational landscape (which has probably gotten worse since they wrote their book)?

    "We know how to educate poor children. We have the knowledge and capacity. We lack the courage." I found the first and last chapters of this book more compelling than the actual research component. The middle of the book felt like a hurried, incomplete literature review; I'd rather spend my time reading the sources the authors cited than the inadequate summation of them in this book. I also had many unanswered questions regarding the authors' research and its feasibility in today's urban American "We know how to educate poor children. We have the knowledge and capacity.

I also had many unanswered questions regarding the authors' research and its feasibility in today's urban American classrooms. The authors' intention was to marry theoretical principles with realistic examples, but I'm not sure they were successful. Instead, this book felt caught in an in-between-ness, where it did neither theory nor practice very well.

    For those interested in critical pedagogy, or those who are just being introduced to the concepts of it, Duncan-Andrade and Morrell present a really practical view of the theory. I even finished all the chapters that we're required by my class, which I don't usually do with theoretical texts like this. It is often a summary of their findings as activist-researcher-teachers, and I would have liked to see more, actual direct quotes from their students. But other than this small quibble, I found th For those interested in critical pedagogy, or those who are just being introduced to the concepts of it, Duncan-Andrade and Morrell present a really practical view of the theory.

    **Did not finish** Very dense material that goes over theories and strategies I've already picked up through my post secondary classes. Definitely a class textbook. Worth a read for newer teachers and educator majors **Did not finish** Very dense material that goes over theories and strategies I've already picked up through my post secondary classes.

    The book ends with a discussion of "revolutionary love" and this book itself is a beautiful act of revolutionary love. The authors do an incredible job of linking theory and practice - moving from theory to practice and returning to theory. In exploring the key elements and practices of critical pedagogy, the authors take the readers through incredibly humanizing and hopeful stories of the implementation of critical pedagogy and the theories that frames these stories. I highly recommend this boo The book ends with a discussion of "revolutionary love" and this book itself is a beautiful act of revolutionary love.

I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone, especially to fellow pre-service teachers seeking concrete discussions of critical pedagogy and an extremely helpful introduction/outlining of the theories that informed the work done by these critical educators.

    Deeply researched and well thought out book. The authors reveal several first hand examples of putting the ideas presented to use and their success. An eye opening read for those interested in the history of modern education from the viewpoint of underprivileged youth. With a glimpse at the future of education once the current system is proven obsolete.

    I read this for a class in my grad program and really enjoyed it. Each chapter is an example of Paulo Freire's critical pedagogy in action in schools in Oakland and Los Angeles.

    For my teacher friends, you'll love this one. Jeff Duncan Andrade spoke at the T4SJ conference year before last and was incredible. For my teacher friends, you'll love this one. Jeff Duncan Andrade spoke at the T4SJ conference year before last and was incredible.
