The Central Park East Habits of Mind
From whose viewpoint are we seeing or reading or hearing? From what angle or perspective?
- How do we know when we know? What’s the evidence, and how reliable is it?
- How are things, events, or people connected to each other? What is the cause and what is the effect? How do they fit together?
- What’s new and what’s old? Have we run across this idea before?
- So what? Why does it matter? What does it all mean?
