Day 4/67: GED in 5 months, and context

As healthy adults, do we always make sure to look at the full context of a given situation, comment, or quotation, when we make judgements about things we hear, or even see? 

Learning to take the context of a situation into account, much like figuring out the meaning of a word based on the context of the words around it, is part of education, and part of continuous Adulting Education also, as we all remember this important practice.

Here is the lesson plan for Day 4, of 67:   (Week 2 of 18 weeks…), in which we looked at a bit of the context surrounding Cesar’s crossing of the Rubicon…

includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.

Day 3/67: 5 month GED, and Adulting as creative problem solving

Learning to solve problems, which I think is the essence of Adulting, begins at an early age and continues to count for a lifetime. Today’s lesson poses a question: What numbers did the ancient Greeks use for counting?

That question was meant to raise the problem of counting non-discrete quantities before Arabic numerals came to Europe (from India).  The problem itself was meant to introduce the concept of using mind-maps as a tool to begin the problem-solving process.

Here is the lesson plan for Day 3, of 67:

Day 2/67 of 5 month GED, Adulting, and the Nile

The Four Freedoms movement starts  with empathy building, which both leads to and requires continuous learning.  Today’s question is about the Nile:

how do you imagine that you would you feel about the river, if you were an Ancient Egyptian?

This is a particularly key concept for all of us who live near water, or nowhere near water, to consider regularly because, how do we know if there is or isn’t enough of it (as someone in Fresno, CA asked me recently: why does it not look like we have a water shortage…)?

 

Action Items  for Adulting that we can take right now:

1.) Consider our responsibility to give back to the community:

2.) Share your thoughts here on how education helps that process,

3.)   Share your thoughts on how you might feel if you lived near the Nile, if you can remember back 4000 years ago.
