ABSTRACT
The article discusses a course design iteration for Introduction to Theatre through the use of personal narratives grounded in Paulo Freire's argument for problem-posing education. In "Pedagogy of the Oppressed," Freire reportedly rejects banking concept of education that depends on a hierarchical system of teachers as dispensers of knowledge and students as receivers of cognizable objects. Freire notably advocates liberate learning to consist acts of cognition not transferrals of information.
