Questions and Answers on the Lesson-Sermon

Questions and answers quicken thought. This is the reason they have proved so effective in teaching. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, in the Manual of The Mother Church (Art. XX, Sect. 3) makes specific provision for questions and answers in the Christian Science Sunday School. After defining the initial instruction, she says, "The next lessons consist of such questions and answers as are adapted to a juvenile class, and may be found in the Christian Science Quarterly Lessons, read in Church services."

Obviously, then, a part of the teacher's preparatory work in the classes where the "next lessons" are taught is to give consideration to questions. Many teachers find it helpful to bring to class a few written questions on salient topics of the Lesson or perhaps a few notations from which to formulate questions. These questions then furnish a nucleus from which others are developed in the class.
