  • 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.
