  1. Pedagogy

    Pedagogy is the science and art of education. Its aims range from the full development of the human being to skills acquisition. For example, Paulo Freire referred to his method of teaching people as "critical pedagogy". In correlation with those instructive strategies the instructor's own philosophical beliefs of instruction are harbored and governed by the pupil's background knowledge and experience, situation, and environment, as well as learning goals set by the student and teacher. One example would be the Socratic schools of thought.

Examples of Pedagogy in a Sentence

  1. Mary Caroline Richards:

    It is part of our pedagogy to teach the operations of thinking, feeling, and willing so that they may be made conscious.
