Knowledge, Competence and Communication

Knowledge, Competence and Communication

Knowledge, Competence and Communication: Chomsky, Freire and the Communicative Movement by William H. Walcott 

More details


£5.00

This work talks about creating an equal teaching system through shared knowledge. This is an examination of the diverse forms of knowledge currently in the modern world and the ways in which that knowledge can be communicated effectively. It is not enough to simply have knowledge: one needs to understand what one knows and be able to communicate it. This ability to communicate what one knows is what determines 'competence'. But there are different philosophical, as well as linguistic, routes to communicative competence. The principle goal of "Knowledge, Competence and Communication" is to examine and assess some of the current and most popular approaches toward linguistics. William H. Walcott debates the meaning of creating equitable and critical instructional practices by exploring diverse representations of knowledge. He covers both historically important topics and current issues such as: colonialism; multi-culturalism; gender and language learning; and popular culture. He then presents a systematic and painstaking assessment of Noam Chomsky's and Paul Freire's theories of knowledge and their educational relevance.

In the end, Walcott makes his case for the Freirian approach - it is the Freirian, with its sociological connection (necessitated by the global context of inequality) which, he believes, needs to take precedence as a pedagogical practice.
