7 There are one-story intellects, two story intellects, and three-story intellects with skylights. All fact collectors, who have no aim beyond their facts, are one-story men. Two-story men compare, reason, generalize, using the labors of the fact collectors as well as their own. Three-story men idealize, imagine, predict--their best illumination comes from above, through the skylight. Oliver Wendell Holmes

8 Level 1 Questions… Level 1 is like the ground floor- the foundation of a building- important information you need to have, such as definitions, numbers, formulas. –The answers can be found in the text or other sources –Very concrete and pertains to the text –Asks for facts about what has been heard or read –Information is recalled in the exact manner/form it was heard

9 Level 2 Questions… The answer can be inferred from the text Although more abstract than a Level 1 question, it deals only with the text Information can be broken down in parts Involves examining in detail, analyzing motives or causes, making inferences, finding information to support generalizations or decision making Questions combine information in a new way

10 Level 3 Questions… The answer goes beyond the text Is abstract and does not pertain to the text Ask that judgments be made from information Gives opinions about issues, judges the validity of ideas or other products and justifies opinions and ideas Provoke discussion of abstract ideas or issues

11 Practice Looking at your picture, formulate a question for each level. Post on post-it chart to share and analyze with class.
