Some Questions to Help Students Ponder…

Part of what I see as an important part of my future job as an English teacher is to help draw out student voices. Some questions to help students pursue answers to:

What’s your story?

How is it like or unlike the stories of others?

What do we owe one another?

What does it mean to be human in the twenty-first century?

What qualities and dispositions and knowledge are of most value to humanity?

How can we nourish, develop, and organize full access to those valuable qualities?

Why are we here?

What do we want?

What kind of world could we reasonably hope to create? 

How might we begin?
