Turning Teaching Inside Out : A Pedagogy of Transformation for Community-Based Education (Reprint)
About this item
The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program brings campus-enrolled and incarcerated students together as classmates in postsecondary courses built around dialogue, collaboration, and experiential learning. Contributors to this book consider the broader lessons that Inside-Out provides for community-based learning praxis, prison education and postsecondary teaching in general, both on campus and in community settings. An international network of practitioner-scholars probe the challenges and contradictions inherent in community-based work, but especially charged in the prison setting: the intersections of race, class and gender, and the tensions between teaching and activism, evaluation and advocacy, and compromise with and resistance to oppressive and dehumanizing systems. At a time when many in the Academy are seeking to deepen the impact of the community-based learning initiatives on their campuses, Turning Teaching Inside Out offers a model.
