Central Park East’s Habits of Mind

The Central Park East Habits of Mind

From whose viewpoint are we seeing or reading or hearing? From what angle or perspective?

  1. How do we know when we know? What’s the evidence, and how reliable is it?
  2. How are things, events, or people connected to each other? What is the cause and what is the effect? How do they fit together?
  3. What’s new and what’s old? Have we run across this idea before?
  4. So what? Why does it matter? What does it all mean?
