The Mind at Work, by Mike Rose, will be a central text for this class in order to aid us in stretching our perspective and reflecting deeply. After our introduction to the book I’d like you to answer the following questions. What skills do you use regularly—at home, school, or on the job—that you think go unnoticed or under-appreciated? How did you learn or hone these skills? Who may not notice these and why? What job(s) do you know you could not do well because you do not have some of the necessary skills, temperament, or desire?

In our Very Short Introduction text, Fineman presents us with snippets of various ways to consider work: motivation, ethics, generationally, and even cultural worth. Please reflect on the reading and answer the following: Why have you chosen your current job/career path? How does it relate to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs (pg. 11)? What do you think motivates (will motivate) you to continually do well in your profession? How do you think your generation, culture, or class influence the way you approach and consider work?
