32
The QuestionsThere are 3 different types of
questions taught in the Strategies for College
Success Course.
  • Reflection Questions
  • Recap Questions
  • Reasoning Questions

33
The Questions!
  • 1
  • Reflection Question

34
Reflection Questions
  • These questions reflect the main points (NOT
    the details) in the notes.

35
Rules for Reflection Questions
  • Make sure they write QUESTIONS.
  • They end with a ?.
  • Write their questions as complete sentences.
  • This helps to develop their thinking skills, so
    that their thinking takes the form of complete
    sentences.

36
Rules for Reflection Questions
  • Create 3-6 questions per page of notes
  • These questions are to cover a large body of
    information!
  • This should allow you to deal with all the major
    ideas in the notes, and not the unimportant
    details.

37
Rules for Reflection Questions
  • Make sure that the questions reflect the
    information in the notes.
  • If they do not, likely they are different kinds
    of questions (to which I will discuss later).

38
Shall we take a break?
39
Different Types of Questions
  • Reflection Questions (Studied before the break)
  • Recap Questions
  • Reasoning Questions

40
Recap Questions
  • Recap an entire page (or topic) of your notes.
  • The number of Recap Questions necessary depends
    on the information.
  • Most times an entire lecture.
  • Sometimes you need several because you are
    covering very diverse topics within the same
    lecture.

41
Reasoning Questions
  • These go beyond the facts and call for judgments
    about the information.
  • Never answered in the notes.
  • Uses?
  • Applying information to real-world examples.
  • Remaining engaged in the material.
  • How does this apply to me?
