CRITICAL THINKING AND CRITICAL PEDAGOGY
Critical Pedagogy and critical thinking have led to a sensitized understanding of pluralities and diversities, enabled us to disentangle texts from the dominant discourse, reveal multifarious perspectives, go beyond the printed word, read meaning from one’s own vantage point, interrogate majoritarian ideology and to see the world from a political lens.
The key question that needs to be addressed is how effectively these intellectual competencies can be taught and nurtured in a language and/or literature classroom. Furthermore, we need to question whether these sensitivities are addressed while framing curriculum or revising syllabi. We need to equally ask whether the cultural dichotomy is factored in classroom pedagogy and assessment. These questions amongst several others are just indicators of the importance of critical thinking and critical pedagogy in a multi-cultural world.
Teachers and research scholars working in this field are invited to share their research and experience dealing with varied aspects of critical thinking and critical pedagogy. As always, articles of general interest to teachers of English Language and Literature are also welcome.
