Page history last edited by Mary Schmidt 14 years, 8 months ago

 

“Curiosity is one of the permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous mind.”  Samuel Johnson

 

This page includes the materials shared and referenced in the Heartland AEA class Developing More Curious MInds. It has been created to assist each who accesses it in becoming more curious, pursuing his/her ponderings, and creating a classroom environment that promotes curiosity and inquisitiveness.
