Transcript

  • 1. Writing Questions for HRRB
    A Guide
  • 2. As you write questions remember …
    The competition should be fun
    The room volunteers have not read the books
    All possible versions of an answer should be given
  • 3. Always start questions
    In the book <book title>, …For example:In the book Elsewhere, what are Observation Decks?
  • 4. Indicating answers ….
    p. #, answerFor example:p.64, places where you can see all the way to Earth
  • 5. Things to think about …
    Is the question based on facts?
    Is the question clearly stated?
    Does the answer have too many parts (beyond 3 parts is too many, you could ask for 3 out of 7 from a list)?
    Can the question be answered differently depending on the point in the story?
    Do not use Yes/No and Either/Or type of questions
  • 6. Things to think about …
    Is a full name required or will just the first or last name suffice? (Liz Hall or just Liz)
    Moderators and other volunteers have not necessarily read the book so list all acceptable answers (i.e. Mein Kampf or My Life or My Struggle)
  • 7. Things to think about …
    There may be a very interesting fact in the story …
    But it may be too hard to word a question clearly …
    So just go on to something else!
    There are lots of possible questions!
  • 8. Let’s Write a Question!
  • 9. Questions from the whole book!
    The 10 questions for each book need to cover the entire book, beginning to end
    Total Pages ÷10 = section
    Then make 1 question from each section of the book
  • 10. Example:
    Tending to Grace has 176 pages
    176 ÷ 10 = 17.6 (or 18 pages)
    Divide your book into sections & then write your questions.
    Sections:
    1-18
    19-36,
    37-54,
    55-72,
    73-90
    91-108,
    109-126,
    127-144,
    145-162,
    163-176
  • 11. Now it’s your turn -
    It is highly recommended that you read the entire book before writing questions
    This will alert you to possible questions that could be answered differently at different points in the story
    So go ahead and read your book … ENJOY!
    Then go back and write questions.
