HOT Questions: Creating Meaningful Questions

Scholars examine a list of questions and sort them into corresponding groups based on similarities. A gallery walk allows peers to see how their peers sorted questions and leave notes. Costa's Level of Questions is the topic of a whole-class discussion about the relationship between questions and comprehension. After re-sorting their cards, learners read an informational text, create a set of leveled questions, and exchange them with a peer.
