Bell Hooks speakes to the heart of education today: how can we rethink teaching practices in the age of multiculturalism? What do we do about teachers who do not want to teach, and students who do not want to learn? How should we deal with racism and sexism in the classroom?
Full of passion and politics, Teaching to Transgress combines a practical knowledge of the classroom with a deeply felt connection to the world of emotions and feelings. This is the rare book about teachers and students that dares to raise questions about eros and rage, grief and reconciliation, and the future of teaching itself.
"To educate is the practice of freedom," writes Bell Hooks, "is a way of teaching anyone can learn." Teaching to Transgress is the record of one gifted teacher's struggle to make classrooms work.

i loved this story/lesson about viewing teaching through her lens. I've felt like this my whole life and she validated my thoughts. I read this book because it was one of her only ones on here and also she's my cousin and I'm attempting to understand her before reaching out to her💗if you're into the science of pedagogy check this one out!

bell hooks on pedagogy
Excellent thoughts from bell hooks on pedagogy. I especially loved her essay/interview of herself (Gloria Watkins interviewing bell hooks) on the influence of and critique of Paulo Friere in her work.
Some really thoughts on inclusive education and the work of change.
Robin Miles narration is good. I'd prefer hooks, but she did well
