This organizer provides a quick reference for teachers to come up with higher level questions on the fly. The staggered flip organizer is divided into five areas teachers use in reading class. The organizer includes inference, main idea, summarizing, compare and contrast, and problem/solution questions.
With every TEAM evaluation, evaluators must find an area of weakness. Teachers must then come up with an action plan for improving this area. During one evaluation, my area of weakness was I needed to use a greater variety of questions during classroom instruction.
Higher Level Questions
To improve in this area, I created this simple, yet effective, staggered higher level questions flip organizer. Each page provides example questions that could be asked during a lesson. I glued the organizer on the inside front cover of my grade book. During class, I use the organizer as a reference to quickly ask higher level questions. After a short while, using a variety of questions became automatic.
