Types of Questions

Students are learning about thick vs. thin quesions and connecting it to what we've learned in test -taking skills. We are now identifying test questions as we read stories and learn test-taking strategies. We use a stoplight to model and help us identify the 3 main types of questions we may encounter on a reading passage test.

(Green questions are -go get 'em. They are directly in the text

Yellow questions-may require the students to think and infer using clues from the text

Red questions are skills or concepts that 3rd graders are expected to know from the common core standards)
