Educator Susan Engel Promotes Student Curiosity

Susan Engel, a prominent national educator, will speak on The Case for Curiosity on Thursday, October 10 at 7 p.m. in St. Anne's Chapel at Marylhurst University.

The free lecture explores practical ways teachers and parents can encourage question asking in the classroom and how schools can make student inquiry a priority.

Susan Engel is a senior lecturer at Williams College and a contributor at The New York Times. She has authored several books; her most recent book, Red Flags or Red Herrings: Predicting Who Your Child Will Become, was published by Simon and Schuster in 2011.

The event is co-sponsored by the Department of Education at Marylhurst University and the Arbor School of Arts and Sciences. It is part of a two-day event including panel discussions and workshops at the Arbor School.
