As you engage your post in activities each week, please include comments, discussions, and feedback to the group relating to Character, Leadership, and Ethics. These are important attributes that make a difference in the success of youth in the workplace and in life.
Ask: Why do people use true and false questions as part of a test or quiz?
Responses may include that the true/false line of questioning helps to show whether you have mastered some factual knowledge about a subject.
Follow up with: A true/false quiz can also be used to find out what you know in advance of learning something.
Distribute the Twenty Questions activity sheet, and give participants a few minutes to mark each response true or false. Review the participants’ responses with them.
Some sample questions are below. They are designed to help the participants apply what they have learned to their own interests. You are welcome to use these questions or develop your own questions that relate to the Post or your specific focus area.
- Did you struggle to answer any of the questions?
- If an Explorer’s answer is incorrect, use the opportunity to discuss his or her misconception and how the best answer reflects what we know is the best preparation for a career.
- What have you learned through this exercise?
- What are some important ways for you to apply what you have learned?
