  • Image 1

Product Description

This course attempts to pull together all the work of the above courses by helping the student begin to identify his or her lifework—a concept far bigger than one’s career.  A good general, liberal education should give a person a broad understanding of the world and all the choices that lie out there for a lifetime of good works.  In addition, Howard Gardner’s book, Good Work, will be a platform for beginning to identify the good work the student would like to major on in his or her lifetime.  The specific objectives are:

  • To understand the value of good work
  • To understand the power of good occupations in seeking the welfare of the city
  • To motivate future interest in and development of becoming a skilled craftsman
  • To spark interest in learning a skill or trade
  • To sketch a future course for lifelong learning in the area of good work and becoming a skilled craftsman
