Assignment 5: critical questions

A well known Nobel Peace Prize winner once said, "When I came home from school each day, my mother did not ask me: 'Did you get the answerscorrect?' Instead, understanding the value of education as an inquiry into ideas, she would ask: 'Did you ask any good questions?' That madeall the difference to me." - Elie Wiesel

HOW TO GET TO THE NEXT MODULE:

Usually, you just click "Next" to go to the next page. When you finish a section, however, (as you're about to do when you finishreading these two paragraphs), you need to click on the "Outline" button, which is on the bottom, right-hand side of the page. Look underneath the bluebar and click on the word "Outline."

When you click on "Outline," a screen will come up that will show you the outline for Course 1. Look for the next section to read andclick on the first topic in that next section. For example, when you get to the outline now, look under the next section called "Multiple Intelligences"and look for the first topic in black lettering called "Overview." Click on "Overview."
