Learning and Education

Essay Question:

How have people in your family learned the things that matter the most to them -- in the classroom, on the job, from loved ones or mentors, or by making their own mistakes?


To support your argument, get some family stories about learning and education. The following questions should elicit family stories that will be useful to you. Composing your own questions might be even more successful, especially if you base those questions on your knowledge of your family chronology and history.
