This is by no means a complete list…
The items on this list are a combination of ideas compiled from many sources, including my own personal experience and inspiration. These are basic questions that anyone with enough time and brainpower can think of.
Therefore, I do not claim ownership of these ideas, nor do I believe that anyone else can either. I merely took the time to compile, arrange, and present the information.
If this list looks similar to any others on the internet or in a text-book, it is because these are good ideas for a conversational class on this particular topic, and these questions can be found in numerous different places. The reason that they appear here is because I have compiled this list for my own personal use and have also made it available for anyone else who may find it useful in their studies or teaching practice.
Information used for educational purposes should be free for ALL, for the sake of education, and the overall advancement of Human-Kind. It is in this same light, that I invite anyone who wishes – to copy, cut, paste, and otherwise use this page for their own educational or instructional needs…
