Skinny Questions vs. Chunky Questions


For reading this week we're learning about the quality of our questions we are asking. Using the terms skinny and chunky we can work out which are the good questions, and which give us short or limited answers.

There was some discussion in the reading group that some skinny questions still give us good answers. For example in our School Journal article Saving Poormans Stream by Maggie Lilleby (Part 3, Number 1, 2010) someone in our reading group asked where Poormans Stream is, which is still a good question, but gives us a precise answer.

If this was your reading piece, this week, what were some skinny and chunky questions you had for this article? Ask them in the comments section below.
