Remembering Noddings from the first day

These were the questions we posted during the first week of Noddings - I'm reposting them here as a place for reflection and thinking forward on your first synthesis essay.
  • Liked - each chapter 20 pages (my gut is that this was intentional)
  • Liked - sequence of history - but sometimes the relationship was unclear
  • How does philosophy relate to teaching practice? Research practice?
  • How to navigate the different educational philosophies - how are they similar / different?
  • Wished - there were more examples (check out later chapters!)
  • Liked - being open and reflective - seeing her values in the discussion (is it her voice? - yes)
  • Liked - choices between a top level view and more details
  • Why are they so interested in education?
