Read “School Is Killing Curiosity” by Wendy Berliner and write a response to the questions below:
- What is something you were interested in when you were a kid? Are you still interested in that topic? How did asking questions help you learn more about that topic?
- If so, how has your curiosity changed and grown over the years? And what role did the educational system play in your curiosity (good or bad)?
- If you are not interested in this topic anymore, what do you think happened to that interest? Do you remember the specific time you LOST interest? What did you become interested in instead (and why?)
- What did you think of this article? Be honest!
