Country is Curious!

This year at Country School, we have been thinking about curiosity and how we as a school can nurture the natural inquisitiveness of children. In our daily work, we offer children many opportunities to identify areas or ideas they wish to explore, as well as many strategies for satisfying their curiosity. It is, at heart, curiosity that sparks engagement, which in turn leads to discovery and new understanding. A recently published book on curiosity, Curious, by Ian Leslie, explores why we are (or aren't) curious and how it develops (or withers) over the human lifespan. It pays particular attention to the roles that questions and questioning play in fostering curiosity as we develop; as a faculty, we will be reading and discussing ideas about the link between questioning and curiosity over the winter months.

We believe that questions are literally the "engine for discovery," a driving force in intellectual, creative, and artistic development, "a technology that children use to "trawl for insights."1 As anyone who lives with a child knows, they are often an inexhaustible source of questions! Yet, it's the complex process of generating those questions that helps children make cognitive leaps--- by realizing what they don't know, and what they want to know, they can forge new paths to find out. Here at Country, we not only want children to answer the questions we pose, but also to pose and answer their own questions as they learn and grow!
