Questioning While Reading

Thin vs. Thick Questions 

Good readers are always thinking of questions as they read.  Questions help us check our understanding, make connections, wonder, and read on to discover answers.  

Some questions are easily connected to a correct answer, often right in the text.  Those are called "thin" questions.  

Some questions require us to interpret, or think more deeply.  They require us to think beyond on the text, and they may have more than one possible answer.  These are called "thick" questions.
