September Word of Month: Questioning Part 3


Week 3

“Look at all the sentences which seem true and question them.”

David Reisman, 20th-century American social scientist

Translation for Adults

For most people, the world was flat until Christopher Columbus took a boat trip. Although you will probably never be a famous geographic explorer, you can be an information explorer. It may seem easier to accept information as true rather than to question or examine it closely.

Have the courage to question any information you don’t understand before you accept it as truth. You will expand not only your knowledge, but also your analytical skills. Today’s questioners will become tomorrow’s discoverers.

Translation for Kids

It’s okay to trust the adults in your life to tell you the truth. It’s also okay to ask them questions.

Asking adults to help you understand what they tell you doesn’t mean that you think that they are wrong. Asking questions will help you understand the truth and difficult ideas better. When you ask questions, you are showing the adults in your life that you want to learn to think for yourself. Questioning is one of the best ways to learn.

Class Discussion for Kids

  1. Did you ever question what an adult told you, instead of accepting it as true?
  2. Did the answer help you to learn more or understand the truth better?
