Negotiating control over the education process, good test of democratic facilitation and group's capacity for control.

New on this website

I have been concentrating on The Workers' Inspiration: Popular Education for Union Democracy. My plan is to get the intro section for each chapter and one activity into good enough shape to be viewed by the public.

I had initially planned to make them available only to registered users until they were in more finished form, but that would mean that a new visitor wouldn't really see much, and might not decide to register.

So, though they are not entirely finished, I am making them public in the hopes that they will make the site more useful to people.

This is not a pipe

I am collecting activities I have used in my English for Activists courses and other language teaching for a book on Participatory Techniques for Language Learning. Like Popular Education for Union Democracy, to get access to all the activities, and comment on, ask questions about, and contribute to the book, you need to register on this website. See "how to participate."

The book is here.

Draft intros and activities added

Registered users can now find draft intro material and activities for each chapter. There is much to tinker with, but it's a start. Feel free to ask questions about the activities and to offer corrections, improvements, doubts etc about them as well.

Getting started

I've been working on setting up the site (the software I am using -- Drupal -- is great, but with more control comes more work!).

  • I have started adding bits to the book, which I retitled. Two activities online so far (draft form, but usable): Challenging the Educators, and The Union Democracy and Power Line.
  • I've added several annotated links, still need to set up a page for viewing them.
