Life Skills Lesson Plan for March 2nd-5th

Monday: Life Questions

  • Question Monday!

Socrates is well known for using questions as a technology and a method of reasoning. He used to call himself ‘the midwife of men‘s thoughts’ (and he had had close experience of the work of a midwife, as his mother was one). Socrates saw his task as helping people to ‘give birth’ to new insights, since it was his conviction that real understanding must come from within. Socrates was of the view that everybody can grasp philosophical truths, if they just use their innate reason.

~Objective: The students will be asked several questions to promote critical thinking and provide the opportunity to appreciate something completely anew. These questions will help open the student’s minds and prompt them to use what they have gathered to come to today’s understanding. Questions can allow a person to escape the prison of what they think they know, and lead to an interested and interesting life.
