Thinking Outside the Box On Ways to Contribute Discussion
A. How do these ideas/readings challenge traditional models of education and notions of "success" in school?
B. How does this content inform your understanding of your own intellectual and cultural strengths AND areas for growth? Decide which of Gardner's Intelligences you think you most possess and which you need to work on strengthening AND which of the "roles" from reading #2 that most correspond to you and which you think it would be helpful to you to improve. WHY?
C. What are other ways NOT discussed in these readings that you can contribute to culture? (peer critiquing? unique perspectives/backgrounds?) For example, if you are a hardworking student who focuses exclusively on academics and is not in any clubs, etc... is that a positive contribution? Why/why not?
D. How can you or others bring these ideas INTO POLs?

Respond to the following quote:
"I always wanted a happy ending... Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity." - Gilda Radner
