  12. 12. Things to think about…good quotes<br />Critical Pedagogy is AWSOME!!!<br />“To create a story, we first need to come to <br />terms with the correct one. This begins by naming <br />it. The story of the stuck community can <br />be heard both in the dominant public debate <br />and also in what we talk to each other about <br />every day. It is important to understand that <br />there is a hidden agenda in every story. This <br />agenda is a point to be made, a political belief <br />about what is important, that stays constant <br />regardless of the events of the day.” pg. 37<br />“Community exists for the sake of belonging and takes its identity from the gifts, generosity, and accountability of its citizens. It is not defined by its fears, its isolation, or its penchant for retribution.” pg. 30<br />Block, Peter. Community: The Structure of Belonging. Copyright 2008 by Peter Block.
