This site is dedicated to the professional and academic work of Dr. Angela Dye.
Originally drawn from the scholarship of John Dewey, Lisa Delpit, and Parker Palmer (and later strengthened by the research of John Gaventa, Paulo Freire, and Gloria Ladson-Billings), the Empowerment Framework centers students in the learning process, gives schooling a pragmatic purpose for building students’ social and democratic readiness, and recognizes students’ sociopolitical environment within the learning process.
The framework has three key features: An expanded scope of achievement; a list of literacies (tools for power); and a method of teaching and learning.
