In his book Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Paolo Friere says: “From the outset, the revolutionary educator’s efforts must coincide with those of the students to engage in critical thinking and the quest for mutual humanization. [The teacher’s] efforts must be imbued with a profound trust in people and their creative power. To achieve this, they must be partners of the students in their relations with them.” Mutual humanization may sound like an audacious goal. But it is, on an intimate scale, achievable through the application of the pedagogy laid out in this paper. This pedagogy is not focused on content, though the process promises deep content immersion and serves to foster personal connection to content in novel ways. Rather, this pedagogy is about the participants, the learners, as people sharing space within a classroom, a community, a planet. The hope is that this step-by-step approach to text study can help build new relationships and strengthen existing ones, creating a communal sense of connection and a deeper understanding of each participant’s humanity.
