Freire's Pedagogy of Love and a Ph.D. Student's Experience
MetadataShow full item record
This article offers an interpretation of Freire’s concept of pedagogical love in a word to world— theory to practice—approach. We offer a definition of the term love; then present coauthor’s Steven’s narrative as an illustration of a real life experience of Freirean pedagogical love. The goal is to begin a conversation about the transformative value of an instructional model rooted in Freire’s pedagogy of emancipatory love; and to seek ways in which this model is applicable to writing centers and other educational settings—not just in colleges, but also K-12 environments.
