Chalk Talk: The Importance of “Why?”
Ask any parent and he or she will likely tell you that it is the “Why?” questions that drive him or her over the edge. The questions start as soon a child begins to talk, and the end…well, they never seem to end. “Why?” really means “I need information to help me make sense of the world.” That simple question is one of the most useful tools in learning. As such, parents should use it, too. It can widen the interpretative possibilities of any child or adult to consider “why”. When reading together, it is important to ask a child why he or she thinks a character chose a particular course of action, or why another character ended up in such a mess. Asking a child “Why?” questions encourages him or her to engage more deeply with a text, and fosters important critical thinking skills.
