Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Types of Questions - Section 3: Evaluative Questions


Students really enjoy creating this flip book.  After reviewing all three definitions and note taking in their journals, students have a better idea of each type of questions.  Students cited examples of answers for each type of questions from the text.  It is important that students understand that answers to these types of questions require text-based evidence in order to deepen conceptual knowledge. In retrospect, the question sorting activity (see source of sample question sorting activity) clarified a lot of misconceptions students had, especially between interpretive and evaluative questions. Although it is till a work in progress, students were excited to display their new found knowledge and enjoyed the creativity of creating this project.  It is a great summary of what they had learned about types of questions.
