Reaction to Paulo Freire The ideas and concepts of learning have been around since humans have been on the earth The methods behind those ideas however usually are not questioned or put on the spot for examination The traditional ways of learning the Banking Concept and the Problem Posing idea which Freire discuses in his essay have been used since the beginning So naturally people do not question the very structure they are based upon When actually examined the ways of learning we base our lives on seems a little less concrete and makes you wonder how much more you could have challenged yourself while you were learning in school The first learning style that Freire talks about is the banking concept It is based on the fact that ever since we started learning teachers have viewed us as their own personal file cabinets which they must fill with as much facts and ideas as they can to satisfy their own teaching goals However they never go into what significance those facts actually have in our lives In my own life I have had this happen to me many times For example I remember learning limits in calculus a very hard concept to grasp but our teacher made it a point for us to learn However she never once stopped to explain when we would use those in our everyday life or if not that where they were used This always bothered me in my schooling I often would be upset with my work and fail to complete it with all my effort because I lacked reason for giving my time and effort for something I have no idea where it could help me Also she could have explained the connections that limits had in other math concepts Instead she just made us memorize the formulas and theory Freire questioned that kind of teaching as a valid way of making the students more intelligent
