What is worth knowing?


In my last post, I wrote about page 61 in Teaching as a Subversive Activity - where Postman and Weingartner asked the readers to contribute their questions to help shape an inquiry-based education, in response to their initial question "What is worth knowing?"

And now, I'm wondering... If you're reading this...

What is worth knowing to you? What are the important questions? What are the unimportant questions that should still be asked?

What is worth knowing?

To start things off, my contributions to my campus' local copy of TaaSA were:

  • Who am I?
  • Who cut the cheese?
  • How do I ride a skateboard? (actually, this was asked by my 5 year old son Evan)
