The students who succeed in making connections among ideas within and between disciplines are beginning to demonstrate the power of inductive reasoning. Each student goes on to create a meaning-filled world for him/herself. Crafters of general education curricula have been paying diminishing lip service to the arts and humanities and haven’t had a coherent understanding of the value of inductive reasoning. Each one of us either creates the world around him or herself or has it created for him/her by others. Since our world is filled with competing creations, it is vital that each student creates individual meaning from the competing creations and therefore an individual place in the world. Schools that apply serious time and effort in this kind of project, so that every student succeeds at beginning to establish connections between ideas, have students who begin to understand conventions. If every educated person knew how to be comfortable outside conventions, every educated person would have the opportunity to make his/her life a creative project.
