Sorting Types of Questions

This week students sorted questions (about the book The Name Jar). Students were told only that the questions needed to be sorted into at least two groups and they must be able to justify their groupings.  Afterwards students participated in a gallery walk to see how their classmates completed the task.

Students sorted the questions in these ways:
-Sorting questions in YES/NO groups like we did during on concept attainment activity on deep questions
-Sorting by the question words (who, what, where etc)
-Ordering the questions by how much students thought the question mattered
