Common Core in a Uncommon World Walt Disney's Surprise Package (1944). “Might Highty Tidy” By Dick Huemer and Joe Grant In front of the jail, the Highty-Tighty put a great machine. “Now,” he said, “begins the fun. We'll take these folk and stretch them a little here, squeeze them a little there, press a bit, flatten a bit, until their forms are just like mine!” The people shook their fists and cried out angry shouts. But it was no use. One after the other, the short, the tall, the fat, the lean, were crammed into the wide metal mouth of the dreadful machine. One after the other they tumbled out again, stretched and flattened and absolutely square!

Adult Learners and Finding Meaning Victor Lebow "Price Competition in 1955" (Journal of Retailing, Spring 1955) "The Real Meaning of Consumer Demand", Lebow wrote: • Our enormously productive economy demands that we make consumption our way of life, that we convert the buying and use of goods into rituals, that we seek our spiritual satisfactions, our ego satisfactions, in consumption. The measure of social status, of social acceptance, of prestige, is now to be found in our consumptive patterns. The very meaning and significance of our lives today expressed in consumptive terms. The greater the pressures upon the individual to conform to safe and accepted social standards, the more does he tend to express his aspirations and his individuality in terms of what he wears, drives, eats- his home, his car, his pattern of food serving, his hobbies.

Start With… Knowles Andragogy Knowles Precepts: – Self-concept: As a person matures his self-concept moves from one of being a dependent personality toward one of being a self-directed human being. – Experience: As a person matures he accumulates a growing reservoir of experience that becomes an increasing resource for learning – Readiness to learn. As a person matures his readiness to learn becomes oriented increasingly to the developmental tasks of his social roles. – Orientation to learning. As a person matures his time perspective changes from one of postponed application of knowledge to immediacy of application, and accordingly his orientation toward learning shifts from one of subject- centeredness to one of problem-centeredness. – Motivation to learn: As a person matures the motivation to learn is internal (Knowles 1984).
