As they read, good readers ask themselves questions There are three levels of questions one can ask Arbitrarily, let’s call them levels 1, 2 and 3.
Factual, information questions Questions about basics: Character – who? Setting – where? When? Plot – what happened? When? Think of quiz questions: “What is the name of the school that from which Holden is “getting the ax?”
Deeper, inferential questions about the text The answer is not immediately obvious but requires deeper reflection The answer is based on the text May relate to the language the author uses (e.g., hyperbole, metaphor) or other techniques Why and how the author’s style For example: Why does Holden write about Allie’s baseball glove?
These are questions that go beyond the book This level is all about connections: to our own lives as readers To current events To historical events To other texts (books, movies, plays, pictures) For example: How would ECA deal with a student like Holden?
On Twitter, tweet two questions about chapters 4-6 a level 2 (how/why) question ab0ut the text a leve 3 question about connections (to you, to our school, our community, the 21 st century) Answer two questions from classmates You cannot leave this until the morning of your class – it’s not fair to others to wait to finish their homework! I will grade this for a homework check grade
