  • This is the PowerPoint I used in the second mini-lesson on questioning. In the first lesson, I defined the three levels (“layers”) of questions, using a clip from the first Shrek movie (the “ogres are like onions” clip) to grab attention and set up metaphor of peeling an onion to peeling the layers of a text to “dig out” deeper truths of a text.
  • We reviewed the three layers of questions learned in previous class.
  • Lead a discussion of the importance of questioning a text: Understanding the text on a deeper level Developing critical thinking skills Generate writing topics
  • Explain how deep questions improve Lit Circle discussions—moving beyond superficial discussions of a text. Also, they lead to “Big Ideas” for writing topics.
  • The questions on the next several slides were generated by students in the first lesson on questioning. Lead a discussion on how these topics give students “Big Ideas” to talk and write about.
  • Read aloud a text and have students generate questions. I introduce a page titled “questions” in students’ writing journals and explain this is a place they can begin a list of questions which will become topic ideas for future writings.
