EvoLit 2011: Education as evolution/story telling
Class is itself an experiment in a particular form of education: co-constructive inquiry
Learning by interacting, sharing observations and understandings to create, individually and collectively, new understandings and new questions that motivate new observations
Depends on co-constructive dialogue, being comfortable sharing existing understandings, both conscious and unconscious, in order to use them to construct new ones. Need diversity of understandings, need to be able to both speak and listen without fear of judgment. Need to see both self and others as always in process, always evolving.
Science as evolutionary/story telling?
Literature as evolution/story telling?
Other things as .... ?
Usefulness of noticing similarities/differences?
