Series: Counterpoints, Volume 350


In this book, Paulo Freire’s culture circles cross linguistic, cultural, and socioeconomic borders to work across contexts in the U.S. (early education, pre-service and in-service teacher education) and in Brazil (adult education). Freire, Teaching, and Learning makes culture circles accessible to those seeking to embrace equity and democracy through everyday educational practices.
