Key Questions:
  • Why is it misguided to depend solely upon an academic program and/or life experiences to develop one’s career?
  • What are the relationships between one’s environment and one’s achieved level of success?
  • How does Robinson’s career mirror Merrill’s First Principles of Instruction?
