There are many resources one can come across to be informed on the history of education and many different methods that will help teachers with their planning and their strategies during their teaching time. School and Society: Historical Contemporary Perspectives gives us information from different scholars who focused on methods, and wanted to change things within the school systems. Experience & Education also brings information about parts and history, and events about school and the program. Teachers as Cultural Worker: Letters to Those Who Dare Teach gives more into this, here Freire puts in writing everything he believes a teacher needs in attitude, methods, strategies, perspectives, etc. to be a great teacher. As well as other readings that bring ideas, and methods as well as some history to what teaching is and has been for some years now.

School involves courses and programs of study, there are also extracurricular activities, as well as teaching and learning (Steve Tozer 7). School is better of focused on education rather than on schooling, teaching can happen in many different ways, just like learning can as well.

Training is the ability to know how to do something, one is trained to read, then on is taught the fascination and details of literature in order to be able to be educated on literature (Steve Tozer 8)
The analytical frame connects three big concepts that work together, and that many scholars have stated, and they are: Political Economy, Ideology, and schooling. Through Freire’s letters he mainly takes the part of schooling and ideology. In his fourth letter he explains how certain virtues can and will make teaching a better performance with them.
One of the virtues is humanity which gives an understanding to the truth, and keeps us from judging others in order to be able to listening to their side of the story, ideas, and comments (Freire 71). Tolerance is also a virtue, one that allows work to be done by being able to accept and learn from what may be known to that individual as something different, and it does not contain the covering or accepting disrespectfulness, or disguising aggression or anything of this sort (Freire 71). And many other virtues that one has, and it is these virtues that relate to ideology, because they...
