This book is not preachy, ideological, or sentimental. Some of those values are participation, affect, problem posing, dialogic, desocializing, researching, and activism, with participation obviously the more encompassing and initiating value.
Shor’s pedagogy is student-centered, but it is not permissive or self-centered. Much of the text uses personal examples about teaching, but it is not simply anecdotal. The vignettes are always interesting and insightful–they wake up the reader, as they must have aroused Shor when he encountered them in his eductaion.
Teachers will be better off for having read this book.
