Pedagogy of Hope (definition):

A Pedagogy of Hope is for everyone. In the 1950s, Paulo Freire, a visionary educator, developed this method of teaching and learning to help oppressed people and those who oppress them. This practice is reciprocal; a Pedagogy of Hope teacher doesn't teach, but rather learns with their students. Students also learn while teaching. Unlike traditional pedagogies, students take part more than simply receiving, sorting, and storing information. Through this process, students can explore how they and others perceive the world and reimagine it as an equitable space for all. Every member of the community defines a Pedagogy of Hope as they work together to build a better, transformed future.
