James Ryan is an education guru. In his 2010 book, Five Miles Away, A World Apart, he looks at 2 high schools in the Richmond region (Freeman and Thomas Jefferson) as a way to explore broader disparities in American education. He is now the Dean of Harvard’s graduate school of Education.
Below he highlights 5 Essential Questions for Life (6 Min).
The Five Questions are as follows:
- Wait, what?
- I wonder why? I wonder if?
- Couldn’t we at least?
- How can I help?
- What truly matters?
We believe asking good questions is the first step in seeing things in fresh ways.
This list is a great start.
