Model For Movement
The “Model for Movement” was my attempt at articulating what “problem-posing pedagogy” (Freire) could look like in my classroom. I wanted to get away from what Freire calls the “banking” or traditional model of education where I was the expert, and move toward creating a classroom where students could co-construct knowledge with me and present the fullness of their realities and communities in a critical manner.
The above screen shots capture both the explanation of the model as well as an example of one that I created for an 11th grade unit that featured Beowulf as its anchor text. Please look below for a document link to this, which contains a blank template to fill out for your own use if you’d like.
