It depends on your perspective. That's one perspective. Not from my perspective. How important is it to learn about life from different perspectives! Our adolescent program students learn about the human processes of self-discovery and self-creation by reading quality literature that explores these experiences from different perspectives, in varied cultures, under a variety of circumstances. The students learn to analyze and synthesize what they are reading through book club discussions and Socratic seminars. At RCM, we place the highest value on asking well-crafted, high-level questions that help our learning community come to a deeper understanding of the characters in the stories, and, then, to a deeper understanding of ourselves and the global community in which we live. We come to a greater understanding of ourselves and our world by exploring universal themes in a variety of literary settings. By studying the foibles of high society in Shakespeare and the challenges of a young boy in the Andes, students begin to understand their individual journies, as well as their connection to others who are similarly navigating their ways through their own journies. By reading quality, entertaining literature about people far different from and, yet, surprisingly similar to themselves, the students learn to appreciate the value of reading and the insight it brings as they examine their lives and the human condition from wide-ranging perspectives.
