“On Friendship” by Kahlil Gibran
Thursday, April 20 • 3:00–4:00 p.m. central time

Join us for a free online discussion of Kahlil Gibran’s poem “On Friendship” and experience Shared Inquiry™ just the way students do! The discussion leaders are expert Great Books Foundation trainers who have a wealth of experience facilitating collaborative exchanges among people of all ages. The group will explore themes of friendship and community during the hour of discussion.

You are sure to contribute your own thoughts about the meaning of the poem, and you will learn from fellow educators as they voice perspectives that expand your understanding of this wonderful piece.

The group will use a Shared Inquiry learning kit developed in celebration of the Foundation’s 75th anniversary, specifically for educators to learn about our successful inquiry methodology. The kit contains the full suite of interpretive activities found in all Junior Great Books® units, including:

  • Prereading/Text Opener
  • First Reading with Sharing Questions
  • Second Reading activities appropriate to grade level
  • Shared Inquiry discussion questions and instructions
  • Extension activities, such as writing or drawing

We can’t wait to see you on discussion day!
