What’s wrong with this short quote?

In Chapter 2 of his 1968 book Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Paulo Freire identifies the problem inherent in the traditional teacher-centered I-teach-you-listen pedagogy:

A careful analysis of the teacher-student relationship at any level, inside or outside the school, reveals its fundamentally narrative character. This relationship involves a narrating Subject (the teacher) and patient listening objects (the students). The contents, whether values or empirical dimensions of reality, tend in the process of being narrated to become lifeless and petrified. Education is suffering from narration sickness. (1)

You can include more than one short quote from in a paragraph, and short quotes from different sources–as long as you format them correctly and identify them clearly. Your grade will probably be elevated if you do so.

Example:

In his 1968 book Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Paulo Freire pinpoints what is wrong with the traditional teaching method: it is not “problem-posing” (par. 30). In other words, it does not encourage students to think critically. Freire’s criticism of the traditional teaching method continues to influence educators today. A January 9, 2019, article published in Albawaba, a Saudi Arabian online news source, reports that “Dr. Ahmed Al-Issa, former education minister, recently inaugurated a program that aims to improve independent thinking by encouraging questions and creating an environment conducive to respecting different viewpoints” (“2019 Saudi School Curriculum”). Perhaps this paradigm shift away from the teacher-centered classroom in Saudi education will also positively affect how Saudis are governed. Per Freire in Pedagogy, “Problem-posing education does not and cannot serve the interests of the oppressor. No oppressive order could permit the oppressed to begin to question: Why?” (par. 54)

Group of answer choicesThat’s right! And your teacher will be ECSTATIC! She will think she has fulfilled her purpose in life as a teacher: helping you to become the great essay writer that you and she knew you could be! And she’ll probably get all crazy-emotional, too.
