How are your lesson plans coming along for your homeschool school year? As we’ve been following Molly, we’ve seen how she has been productive with pulling together her Principle Approach® lessons. Recently, there was one little snag holding her back. How is she supposed to write Reason and Relate questions? And what are these supposed to look like? Now Molly knows, and you too can see how easily you can write Reason and Relate questions for your lessons.
See How Easily You Can Write Reason and Relate Questions
Asking Questions Is Natural
In short, it’s a natural progression in communication from the youngest to the oldest child. Obviously, you’ll need to base questions on God’s Principle of Individuality. For each child’s comprehension levels vary from one another. And this is why it’s beautiful that you get to teach and dialogue with your children as you discuss from Scripture the Reason and Relate questions (you know your children best). That being said, the following is an easy framework to help you with your own questions as you study, and then you are able to break it down to a level your child may understand.
Ask the “Who”…
Who is behind this action or attitude?…
Ask the “What”…
What was the result of said actions or attitude?
What is the main idea of…?
What facts or ideas show…?
What examples can you find to…?
What is the theme…?
What is the motive…?
And More Question Types
There are also “When” and “Where” and “Why” and “Which” and “How” questions to ask. Whether it’s who, what, when, where, why, which, or how, there are two goals. Firstly, Reason and Relate questions help guide your students to think about the Leading Idea. Secondly, it they help students see how the Bible Principle associates with the content of your lesson.
