Literal or Interpretive?

We have been focusing on questioning in reader’s workshop.  We read Cheyenne Again and practiced asking literal and interpretive questions.  Literal questions are answered with the text and help students restate what’s in the text.  Interpretive questions can’t be answered with the text and cause student to interpret and think beyond the text. We are getting good at using our background knowledge, research and small group discussions to answer our interpretive/unanswered questions.  Ask your child to share with you a literal and interpretive question about their home reading.
