Teaching as a Subversive Activity
What’s worth knowing?
Neil Postman and Charles Weingartner published Teaching as a Subversive Activity in 1971, but it could have been written yesterday. It’s a call to question everything about why we teach what we teach, and urges us to connect our classrooms with the world beyond them. We use this excerpt in our workshops, but the entire book is essential reading for teachers of all subjects.
