These questions are to be
used in connection with the study of How I Used Truth. Each student
should study his lesson with these questions before him. It is a very good
practice to write out the answers and bring them to the class. Each student
should recite as often as possible, but should not monopolize the class
period. Every member of the class should have opportunity to express his
realization on any subject. These questions need not necessarily be answered,
but may be used to call attention to the central idea contained in the
paragraph under consideration. A class should not cover more than five
questions at a meeting. Remember, never argue! Keep to the subject! Be
considerate of everyone's ideas! Your purpose is to find Truth.
