Paulo Freire was a Brazilian educator dedicated to helping lift peasants from a life of oppression by engaging them in critical consciousness, or conscientização, about their situations. During his time in political exile, Freire created a pedagogy, or teaching method, to guide revolutionary leaders in their attempt to encourage oppressed people to join in political action through respectful dialogue.
