General Description

In The Question, Leigh Bortins' second book on classical education, Bortins explains how to foster an inquisitive spirit and challenge students with rigorous academics in the middle and early high school years through use of the five essential question types. Rather than forcing children to suppress their own innate desire to question everything as they grow, Bortins embraces this stage, offering good questions to encourage growth and learning. "That is the joy of the dialectic stage, in which your child's natural argumentativeness opens the door for the kind of adult conversations that truly matter" (p. 86).
