Welcome to Resources for Teachers links to video posted at the California Acceleration Project, in which "developmental reading" students are discussing "The 'Banking' Concept of Education" by Paulo Freire.
INSTRUCTOR: So how does that relate to oppression?
STUDENT: 'Cuz you know it's down when it's the oppression time.
INSTRUCTOR: It sets you back.
STUDENT: Now you can't get no jobs or nothing. You got a depression, know what I'm saying, Recession.
INSTRUCTOR: "It inhibits creative power." You know that word inhibit? Make a guess at what inhibit [unintelligible].
VARIOUS STUDENTS: Advance? Occupy? Allows?
INSTRUCTOR: That's a good guess.
INSTRUCTOR: From context. You look at the rest of that sentence and the whole article and what we've learned so far. Make a guess at what inhibits means.
INSTRUCTOR: Do you think that banking education ALLOWS creative power? Does that work?
STUDENT: Hell no. It RESTRAINS it.
INSTRUCTOR: Exactly! Exactly.
(Successful student exchanges high five with neighbor.)
INSTRUCTOR: Nice reading from context. Right on.
