Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Analyzing Questions - Section 1: Revising Factual Questions


Students dictated questions to me that I wrote on post its.  We discussed each question to determine whether they are factual or interpretive.  Students for the most part understand the difference between deep and shallow questions, as evidenced by the sample questions they dictated to me (see resource).  They also understand that both types of questions require text support.  However, interpretive questions may rely on clues or inferences the author makes throughout the story.  Student conversations during this activity suggest that they are still struggling with the concept of more than one answer possible per interpretive question.
