Dead Poets Society Writing Assignment

What lesson was Keating trying to teach his students with this statement?

"I stand upon my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things a different way. The
world looks very different up here . . . Just when you think you think you know something you
have to look at it in another way . . . When you read, don’t just consider what the author thinks,
you must consider what you think."

Another lesson Keating was trying to teach his students was to challenge the status quo when appropriate. Can you recall examples from the book when a character challenges the status quo?

Vocabulary: status quo
