Example text

For example, suppose you are teaching chemistry and have the students do a distillation experiment. , liquid, solid, gas), which is something (x1) you want the students to know about, you also teach them (x2) how to set up a distillation apparatus. Setting up the distillation apparatus is something you want the students to learn to be able to do; it is a skill, and as such is a kind of capability different from the knowledge they have about phases and states. Thus x can and often does have multiple meanings.

The first is to acquire specified knowledge, the second is to become an authentic person, and the third is to liberate the mind. You will see how a change in y can alter ø and x dramatically. When the teacher undertakes teaching (ø) with the purpose of preparing the students to learn something in particular (y = executive purpose), then the teacher's approach to the student and to the content is very different from when the teacher sets out to free the mind of the student (y = liberationist purpose) or to develop the self (y = therapist purpose).

Are you ready to abandon this approach as unfaithful to your ideals of education? Are you disappointed that what seemed a useful way to approach teaching turns out to have such unsavory features? Or will you hold on to this approach in the belief that its value outweighs its faults? What are the arguments for holding on to it? Let us take a look. In the introductory chapter you met Jim Barnes, the elementary school teacher who prided himself on his ability to teach specific subject matter. Imagine that you are Jim.
