I think that too many teachers fail to ensure that their students are learning how to learn. The analytical process or critical thinking seems a secondary goal here in France. Especially in primary school, regurgitation or rote learning seems to prevail.

A more thorough etymology from Online Etymology Dictionary.

Original Greek sense was slave who escorted boys to school.

Thus the current meaning, slave who tries to escort children to knowledge.

Culturally relevant teaching is a term created by Gloria Ladson-Billings (1994) to describe “a pedagogy that empowers students intellectually, socially, emotionally, and politically by using cultural referents to impart knowledge, skills, and attitudes.” Participating in culturally relevant teaching essentially means that teachers create a bridge between students’ home and school lives, while still meeting the expectations of the district and state curricular requirements. Culturally relevant teaching utilizes the backgrounds, knowledge, and experiences of the students to inform the teacher’s lessons and methodology.

Thank you monamagda for that very interesting, informative and timely link. Education is so important and in today's multicultural societies, even more so. I have enormous respect for those teachers who learn from their students and in turn teach them to learn.

Teachers do not get the respect they deserve. My daughter and several of my friends are teachers. It is one tough and time consuming job.

I think the term "pedagogy" has a meaning problem, and it has been since the meaning greek that said that a pedagogue was a person who cares of the kids like a servent, but the term has evolutionated, pedagogy is no only the art of teaching, now is a science complete.
