There is an art in questioning
which all teachers have not learn
ed and many have fuilecl because
they did not. A question should
Tho day's work will bo a unit if
tho teacher will so relate the les
sons of tho day that they will
str&ngthen one 'another, be united
in their trends, with a central
thought upon which thoy all de
pend, that will coino out clear and
strong at the close.
A school was visited some timo
ng6 where a class" in arithmetic
was being questioned on the
division of a mixed " number by u
mixed number. The question ran
thus. "Well, Charley, you have
finished, havo you?" "Yes, sir."
"What did you get?" "Four and
a half. "You reduced tho 63 to
'.an improper fraction;' did you?"
"Yes, sir." And so' on most of
the 'questions could bo answered
by ''Yes, sir." It may be a habit
you have and do not realize it.
Stop and think.
Each day's work in the school
room should be a unit, each lesson
a unit. Many teachers malto a
great effort to make tho individual
lesson plan tho work of art. Tho
individual lesson has throe es
sential parts: Making sure of
the known; Making it lead to tho
unknown; and making sure by
summary or application of the
now known. Any permanent ac
quirement of the next' related un
known makes a successful lesson,
nlesson which is a unit. But
teachers should bo very careful in
'making the lesson plane that thoy
do not embody too much 01 the
now and then find it difficult to
get the child to grasp the un
known. If the teacher under
fctands her pupils, knows the con
sciousness of the child, she can
present the right unknown and it
will become known to tho child of
its own accord, as the natural food
meets the natural appetite t?ud be
cumts fltfch and Mood.
