Open Access Presidential Scholars Thesis
Susan J. Koch
Considering the question, "What are the qualities of an educated child?" has been both a personal and professional journey for me. That question was what I sought to answer nearly a year ago and have been thinking about ever since. Through this paper I intend, not just to share any conclusions I have reached, but also describe the thinking process I went through to get there. Actually, the process may have been more significant than the end. I believe that it has been a worthwhile topic to investigate, helping me to grow as I complete my own formal education and look to begin helping others through the process of becoming educated. Throughout my years in school I considered myself more educated than many of my peers, but I have decided I was far from correct. Perhaps I was intelligent, but not necessarily educated. I have had to examine both my own state of education and that which I intend to bring into the lives of my students. Such an examination, I think, is important for every teacher education student to conduct before ever being in a classroom full time.
