Reading Questions: Richard Feynman, “O Americano Outra Vez” on pg. 68. 1. Reflect upon Feynman's narrative, and in your own words, write down what you believe to be the moral (or point) of his story. I believe the moral of Feynman’s narrative is that education is not just about memorizing facts and knowledge and learning through reading textbooks, but developing an individual’s skills through experience and thorough methodical processes. 2. Richard Feynman describes the Brazilian university system, which seems to emphasize learning facts for the sake of it. How has your experience at USF been like what he describes? How has it been different from what he describes? My experience at USF is similar to the Brazilian university system in which some of my classes are taught through ways Feynman describes but in my other classes, I learn in a more proper method by going through problems and examples that will better help me in the real world.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
