“First Freire is a fascinating discourse on the meaning and power of Freire's contribution by a noted colleague and scholar.”
—Henry M. Levin, William Heard Kilpatrick Professor of Economics and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University
“Paulo Freire was one of the great educational and political philosophers of the 20th century. In First Freire, Torres—a foremost Freire scholar—has provided us with a wonderful and insightful analysis of the many facets of Freire's writings. Particularly important is Torres’ ability to situate Freire's work in the political context that framed and defined his writings. Hopefully, First Freire will inspire a new generation of educators to move beyond the current neo-liberal discussions about student test scores and ‘what works’ to understand the political meaning of education.”
—Martin Carnoy, Vida Jacks Professor of Education, Stanford University
“Professor Torres successfully combines, in unconventional ways, his personal reminiscences of Freire with essays that illuminate Freire’s political philosophy and thoughts on the anthropology of education, demonstrating specific approaches one can use to engage in the method of thematic investigation proposed by Freire. A considerable merit of this book is how it persuasively shows the timely relevance of the critical observations of this great Latin American thinker to contemporary society, as we struggle to go beyond economic and technological globalization to rebuild our changed but still community-oriented selves.”
—Nelly P. Stromquist, professor, University of Maryland
The International Baccalaureate informs the first part of the book which includes educational research as well as practical suggestions for improving the tour experience, including an integration of academic subjects. Although much has been written about the impact of international travel, this book explores ways educators can transform domestic tours for public and parochial school students.
The second part of the book offers resource guides for four cities – Washington, D.C.; New York; Philadelphia; and Boston. Teachers, tour directors, and tour operators, will find discussion questions activities as well as detailed background information for four of the most visited cities by students. Many of the questions and strategies can be adapted for other landscapes.
Society has corrupted itself in the past centuries, and it is living in this situation with a natural and utter disregard for a constructive evolution of thousands of years. This has motivated me to analyze various works on mental health, namely, related to how the brain processes and analyses reality – which is normal and what is not. Inevitably, and as a consequence of the detachment towards the illusions of humanity, a new world was unveiled before my eyes, and with it new paths to know and discover. A good part of this new knowledge has changed my personality and altered my way of facing life forever.
La sociedad se ha corrompido en los siglos pasados, y está viviendo esta situación con una indiferencia natural y absoluta para con toda una evolución constructiva de miles de años. Esto me ha motivado a analizar diversas obras sobre salud mental, a saber, la forma del cerebro procesar y analizar la realidad – lo que es normal y lo que no es. Inevitablemente, y como consecuencia de un desbloqueo de las ilusiones de la humanidad, un nuevo mundo apareció en frente a mis ojos, y con él nuevos caminos para conocer y descobrir. Una buena parte de este nuevo conocimiento ha cambiado mi personalidad y alteró mi forma de enfrentar la vida para siempre.
