True engagement with another human, without judgment, creates a safe space for wondering and asking questions

Travel.  Diverse schools.  We often claim that having students engage with individuals different from themselves gives an unparalleled opportunity to learn.  In those well designed settings when students have time, skills and opportunity to truly engage with others, a deep appreciation can grow.  

How does this idea help to spark student curiosity?

To recognize that someone or something is different, but valued and interesting, provides a deep motivation to learn more by asking questions and truly listening.

What grade level is this idea most appropriate for?

Hi Kelley, thanks for sharing your idea! I'm curious what types of travel or new experiences you've created for your students and how those opportunities have helped them learn or become curious about something new. It's great to have you joining us again!
