Day 1 - Monday, July 27, 2020

Theme: Introduction to Critical Pedagogy

Questions to Ponder

  • What struck you from today's vidcast or readings? Any Aha's?
  • What is your definition of Critical Pedagogy? Would we want to operationalize a term like Critical Pedagogy and, if so, how would you operationalize it?
  • What are oppressed groups? Does the often used term URMs (Underrepresented Minorities) mean essentially the same thing or are there subtle differences between the two?
  • How does critical pedagogy differ from critical thinking?
  • What are some examples of how you apply critical pedagogy in your typical classroom?
  • How do we apply critical pedagogy in an online environment?
