A few posts ago, Michael asked me, “What do you teach? What knowledge or worldview do you hope your students leave you with?” This is an excellent question, and I am glad he has driven me to self-examination by it. I always consider what my students leave each class day with, and what I hope they will leave each course with, but what is the overall worldview I hope to impart by a year or a lifetime of teaching? So I will consider this question in several parts over many days to come.
Meanwhile, I would like to ask you to answer the question, Dear Reader. Yes, that means you! I would love to read many short, small, thoughts and anecdotes regarding your worldview. If you are a teacher, What knowledge or worldview do you hope to impart to your students? If you are an artist (visual, literary, other…), What knowledge or worldview do you hope to impart to your audience (viewers, readers, etc…)?
Please feel free to share your thoughts!
