They should criticize the purposes, content, approaches and technologies of teaching. Also, they should criticize curriculum knowledge, and discover it’s underneath interests and ideologies. Giroux claims that teachers are one of the resistance resources against reproduction of the dominant system (hegemony) in education, and they can criticize their hegemony by means of breaking borders of dominant curriculum. Teachers should be possessed of enriched cultural studies, too, and study cultural differences and draw attention to them in classroom. They should make opportunities for all of the students so that they can communicate their own culture and history in classroom, and ultimately, by this way they can connect teaching up to their lives and culture.
