Over the last two months or so, we've been having an extended conversation about Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers as part of our larger efforts to increase collaborative intellectual activities beyond the classroom involving students of color.
We've discussed a wide range of thought-provoking and fascinating issues such as accumulative advantage, practical intelligence, meaningful work, and something known as the 10,000 hour rule.
Now that we're halfway through the book, I was wondering: what lessons or issues stand out most to folks based on what we've read and discussed on the blog so far?
Or, what important or overlooked issues concerning Outliers would you want to bring more attention to? Why?
