Reflection: Checks for Understanding Questioning: Plain cheese sandwich or a loaded double decker? - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


The Questioning Guide is illustrated with sandwich clipart. Thin questions are represented with a thin, one layer sandwich and thick questions are represented with a taller, multi-layer sandwich, which looks more appealing. I did this purposely because, although both types of questions are valuable, thick questions are much more conducive to strong comprehension. Thick questions are about inferencing and drawing conclusions so those are the kinds of questions I encourage students to ask themselves.
