Wonder and Learning
McEwan, Anna E.
Educational Forum, v72 n2 p108-114 2008
This reflective essay explores the relationship between wonder and learning. Building on the belief that child-like wonder is a precursor to growth, the author discusses four ways to encourage wonder in her college students: getting straight on "who we are" as learners, providing opportunities for discovery and surprise, asking and inviting questions, and creating memorable classroom experiences.
