-Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of Freedom While I serve as a resource for my students, I am not the be all and end all. Our students are not the
way they used to be. That's okay. But wait. This is English class! Will we still... Write? And learn grammar? Read? In a simple word: Yup. We will also... analyze. create. question. view. perform. and change. Some say knowledge
is a gift. I disagree.
Knowledge is created, not given. What will we study in this course? Knowledge. Power. "Knowledge emerges only through invention and re-invention, through the restless, impatient, continuing, hopeful inquiry human beings pursue in the world, with the world, and with each other."
