What Do You Know?

Think of something you have encountered in the past few days that makes you curious.  What is it?

  • Example:  Why have I had trouble sleeping lately?
  • Example:  With what school of poetry is Richard Brautigan most closely associated? 
  • Example:  What will students need to know in order to be information literate in the year 2025? 
  • Example:  Should I travel to Peru, England, or Yellowstone Park in 2016?
  • Example:  Why does something pop into your mind after you have forgotten it for many years?  What service does forgetting provide?  By what process and what need does the memory rise to consciousness again? 

What do you already know about it?
