See Touchstones In Action
Touchstones texts are the starting point for the discussion. Each text offers a unique perspective worthy of close examination, in conjunction with the participants’ own experiences and ideas on the topic or topics raised in the text. Through the comparing and contrasting and analysis of the ideas expressed in the discussion and the discussion process itself, the class deepens and broadens its thinking and understanding together. More likely than not, more questions will be raised than will be answered—spurring on the types of thinking and inquisitiveness that are hallmarks of life-long learners.
