It is in the nature of pedagogy as a social activity to bring the outside world in, and not just some aspects of the outside world but every conceivable aspect-atoms, poems, mountains, revolutions, laws, kidneys. This is how everything in the world becomes learnable within the formalized institutional frame of education -by exophoric reference. If the architecture of meaning of the classroom is like a clause where the given/subject is addressed by the new/predicate, then the given/subject is the taken-for-granted existing knowledge of the student, and the new/predicate is whatever the class happens to be about-and that could be anything at all.
