About this book

This book uses the metaphors of practice spaces and practice sessions to demonstrate the connection between creative and performance practices, and critical pedagogy. It offers a conceptual framework for using performance and creative practices as starting points for developing philosophies and practices of teaching that are grounded in aesthetic, creative, and critical approaches to education. The practice sessions for pedagogy presented include a range of creative endeavours, such as performance workshops, musical routines, crafting practices, and writing. By focusing on the critical function of creative practices, the book emphasizes the ways creativity can reveal the relationship between everyday acts, and social and cultural ideologies and structures. Creative practices also present the opportunity for imagining new, more socially just and inclusive, configurations of these relationships. This book is designed for teachers and students interested in critical pedagogy, performance, and creative educational practices.

Reviews

“With their “practice session” framework, McRae and Huber highlight the immense potential of classroom spaces as sites of routine, repetition, and rehearsal—of experimentation, improvisation, and risk. Part invitation, part instruction manual, part art project, this book embodies the metaphor it proposes—calling me to practice critical teaching artfully.” (Amy K. Kilgard, Associate Professor of Performance Studies, San Francisco State University, USA)
