Writing Project 1: project proposal

Topic Proposal: Topic 3

Team Selection: Just Ruthie Lohmann

Working Thesis: An educator and student are on the same path to a life-long acquisition of knowledge and understanding through discovery and rediscovery of information as it relates to their own distinct experiences and how this new perceived awareness relates to the world in which they live.

Two Quotes from Freire to back up my Thesis:

1) “The problem- posing method does not dichotomize the activity of the teacher-student: she is not “cognitive” at one point and “narrative” at another. She is always “cognitive,” whether preparing a project or engaging in dialogue with the students. He does not regard cognizable objects as his private property, but as the object of reflection by himself and the student. In this way, the problem-posing educator constantly re-forms his refections in the refection of the students. The students- no longer docile listeners-are now critical co-investigators in dialogue with the teacher. The teacher presents the material to the student for their consideration, and re-considers her earlier considerations as the students express their own. The role of the problem-posing educator is to create, together with the student , the conditions under which knowledge at the level of doxa is superseded by true knowledge, at the level of logos.”

2) “Problem- posing education affirms men and women as being in the process of becoming- as unfinished, uncompleted beings in and with a likewise unfinished reality. Indeed, in contrast to other animals who are unfinished, but not historical, people know themselves be unfinished; they are aware of their incompletion. In this incompletion and this awareness lie the very roots of education as an exclusively human manifestation. The unfinished character of humans beings and the transformational character of reality necessitates that education be an ongoing activity.”

One thought on “Writing Project 1: project proposal”

  1. Peer Review:
    Positive: I think your thesis is strong, it is true that students and teachers are on the same path to life long education, I think your second quote about being “unfinished” projects is great for your thesis considering each student and teacher is still learning.
    Negative: Students and Teachers may be on the same path to knowledge but they have two completely different realities, they most likely grew up in two different generations and are probably in two different periods of their lives. How are you going to be able to connect the student/ teacher realities to each others own lives?
