
 Key Types*:
Right There – literal, ask for information using the
question stem itself to locate the answer at times
Think and Search – also literal, but require the reader to
compile the answer across several sentences or
paragraphs
Author and You – require students to use inferential
skills to pair information from the text with their
background knowledge
On Your Own – invite students to formulate opinions
based on their experiences as well as what they have
learned from the text
